Fortune Cookie Fortunes

Crack! Crack! Crack!
The best part about eating at a Chinese restaurant is the fortune cookies.
What do you think they will say?

The family from Dim Sum For Everyone! has finished eating and are opening their fortune cookies. The cookies snap open and the family's fortunes are revealed. Mei Mei wants to know how hers will come true. Jie Jie scoffs that they never come true. But Pacy isn't so sure. As she waits and watches, she notices magical things happening in her family. Could the fortunes really be right? And what about Pacy's fortune: "You will see the world in a new way?" Well, yes, it's true! Pacy has been seeing the world through fortune cookies!

This exhuberantly illustrated story about every kid's favorite part of a Chinese meal also includes a brief history of the fortune cookie.

What will your fortune be? Crack! Open up a cookie and find out.
