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! The simple text and colorful art makes this early reader a perfect choice for children learning to read.

  • *"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
  • *"Lin continues to work wonders within the early reader format in twins' Ling and Ting's birthday-themed second outing...Despite working with a limited vocabulary, Lin infuses the twins' every interaction with personality and understated humor, while underscoring the girls' individuality."
    Publishers Weekly, starred review
  • "These cheerful stories, with their flat, 50's-style illustrations, tell an inescapable truth: twins have to negotiate everything."
    New York Times Book Review
  • "Simply written and engaging, the brief stories are well suited to beginning readers...An appealing addition to the Ling & Ting series."
    Booklist
  • "While the book has a sweetly retro feel to it, Ling and Ting's adventures will appeal to contemporary audiences....Let's hope Lin continues to share with readers the further adventures of this dynamic duo."
    The Horn Book
  • "Even though this is a short and simple early chapter book, the characters are fully developed and distinct, and children should be encouraged to infer the protagonists' traits. An excellent stand-alone purchase or addition for libraries already familiar with these endearing sisters."
