Storytime: The Ugly Dumpling

Sat, Nov 5, 2016 from 10:00 am - 10:30 am PDT
1119 SW Park Ave Portland, OR 97205

“A whimsical story about being different, and the power of love.”—Wendy Orr, author of Nim’s Island and The Princess and Her Panther

It’s not easy being the ugliest dumpling in a dim sum restaurant. Uneaten and ignored, the ugly dumpling is down in the dumps. But when an encouraging cockroach sees the dumpling’s inner beauty, this unlikely duo embarks on an eye-opening adventure, leading the ugly dumpling to discover its true identity and realize that being different is beautiful after all.

A modern fairytale retelling with a timeless moral: There’s a little ugly dumpling in all of us.
