Young Nancy is helping Ni Ni (Grandma) in the kitchen when a letter arrives with bad news her childhood home in China, with its beautiful garden pond filled with fish and ringed with chrysanthemums, is being torn down. Later that day, at the summer fair, Nancy spots a ball-tossing game, Win a Goldfish! Aiming carefully, she wins one, and then two. Now the question is how to use them to make Ni Ni feel better. Andrea Cheng's sensitive text and Michelle Chang's lovely illustrations show the enduring bonds that can exist across cultures and generations.
