Katrina Moore, Xindi Yan (Illustrated by)

Daisy is traveling to China, and she's excited to see her Yeh-Yeh again! She has big plans for all the fun they'll have together in preparation for Lunar New Year, like flying kites and making jiao zi. But when she arrives, she has trouble sleeping and is less jolly than she hoped. Throughout the week, Yeh-Yeh tries all sorts of things to help her have a fun holiday and get her past her grumpiness. Will Daisy be able to get some rest and have one perfect day before she goes home?
This funny and heartwarming follow-up to Grandpa Grumps celebrates Lunar New Year and the love of a doting grandparent.

"Vivid spreads alternate between vignettes and close-ups of facial expressions registering surprise, frustration, and fatigue, while atmospheric full bleeds convey a child's sense of wonder, festive fireworks, an extended-family gathering, and a bustling street parade. . . A simpatico portrayal of holiday travel across time zones." --Kirkus Reviews

"Moore structures her story as a 10-day countdown, and Daisy's big, conflicting feelings are entirely relatable. The holiday preparations and celebrations come to life in Yan's illustrations, which integrate humor and cultural details. Appended recipes truly make this a treat." --Booklist
