  About The Book

Ling & Ting are twins. They share a birthday. They bake cakes, and they make birthday wishes. They tell stories and wrap gifts. They also share a birthday secret!

Have fun with Ling and Ting! They stick together and look alike. But they are not exactly the same.

* "[I]n the same category as Arnold Lobel's 'Frog and Toad'"
SLJ, starred review

"The girls' differing personalities and sisterly affection continue to shine...Once again Lin's richly colored gouache artwork, based on 1950s children's textbook illustrations, gives reason enough to celebrate. Tw-inspiring fiction for beginning readers."
Kirkus, starred review
