I enjoyed this book I wasn't sure what to expect from a book about Chinese children by a white author in the 1950s so I steeled myself for some condesension and prejudice despite the cute story and drawings I was wrong the book was delightful an excellent way for children to learn about San Francisco Chinese culture in the 1950s Lenski's artwork is charming and the culture was fascinating Mei Gwen was a bit of a sissy princess no way I would have liked her as a kid but she improves over the course of the book and her older brother Felix learns his lessons as well a good book for children I'm looking forward to trying some of her other books

Felix is a Chinese boy of ten or eleven living in San Franciso's Chinatown with his sister Mei Gwen who is nine and his six year old twin brothers Frankie and Freddie We don't know why the boys have American names and the girl has a combination name though from other books I've read it was common in the 1950s for Asian immigrants to give American names to their childrenFelix can do pretty much what he likes after school but Mei Gwen has to watch over the twins Their mother works in a jeans factory like a sweat shop and Mei Gwen goes there after school to babysit the little kids who are brought to work by their moms The father of the family is head cook at a restaurantAfter some free time Felix must go to Chinese school in the late afternoon and arrives at home very late He is unhappy in the city and yearns for the tiny rural town of Alameda where the family lived when he was very young Mei Gwen has grown up in the city and has friends of all nationalities for blocks aroundThough the story follows the usual Lois Lenski arc it is the most exotic of her books due to the location and subject matter Through the children we get a tour of the key San Francisco sights and the relation of Chinese to other nationalities thereLenski presents these people with her customary grace and tolerance of the differences in people Her love of children and her fascination with the growing up process is palpable in San Francisco Boy I was captivated on every page
