A moving picture book about Chinese paper cutting and sharing the magic of friendship across continents.

On a snowy Lunar New Year’s Eve, it’s Dandan’s last night with Yueyue. Tomorrow, she leaves China for America. The two best friends have a favorite wintertime tradition: crafting paper-cut snowflakes, freezing them outside, and hanging them as ornaments. Will there be anyone to carry on this tradition with in Dandan’s new home?

With the wisdom of Dreamers by Yuyi Morales and the heartfelt holiday appeal of Bringing in the New Year by Grace Lin, Dane Liu shares a story based on her own immigration experience, the infinite impact of friendship, and passing on love and kindness around the world.

Author’s note. “About Paper Cutting,” with instructions to make a snowflake. Full-color illustrations were drawn with pencil, colored with ink, scanned, and then digitally collaged in Photoshop.
