Series: Ling & Ting, Book 1
They have the same brown eyes. They have the same pink cheeks. They have the same happy smiles. Ling and Ting are identical twins-but whether they get haircuts, perform magic, make dumplings, or tell stories, it's plain to see that they are not exactly the same. Full-color illustrations.

Junior Library Guild


• Good-humored twins let their differing personalities shine in amusing episodes.
• Ling and Ting’s Chinese American ethnicity provides a welcome injection of diversity to the early-chapter-book genre.
• The six short chapters flow nicely, with elements first introduced in one story appearing again later on. Ting’s botched haircut is a humorous and clever way to allow readers to differentiate the twins throughout the book.
• Grace Lin’s bright, simple artwork highlights the twins’ closeness and sense of fun. Illustrations appear in frames that vary in color for each chapter.

Horn Book

In her first early reader, Lin presents six chapters, each a brief, humorous story about twin sisters Ling and Ting. People are always telling them they're exactly the same; however, readers will get to know the identically dressed girls by their unique personalities (and Ting's uneven bangs). The stories are warmly illustrated with Lin's color-saturated art inside boldly hued borders.
