Amy’s back with a legendary show-and-tell – just in time for Lunar New Year! Amy and her friends learn about dragons in school and the teacher tells each student to make their own. While the other kids in class are creating their dragons, Amy’s stuck on her project. Disappointed, she goes home and learns from Grandma that there are other kinds of dragons that her teacher didn’t talk about in class. Inspired, Amy makes a special, one-of-a-kind dragon that perfectly represents who she is.

Amy Wu and the Patchwork Dragon is a fun, beautifully-illustrated book that shows how our schools often neglect to feature Eastern cultures in favor of Western cultures. Even so, Amy finds a way to teach others about her dragon and her heritage. This book would be a welcome addition to any child’s picture book collection. This is the second book in the Amy Wu series by Kat Zhang and illustrated by Charlene Chua. Amy Wu and the Perfect Bao is the first book, and a third book, Amy Wu and the Warm Welcome, will be released in May 2022.
