(From the publisher):
"Hoang wasn't much taller than the kitchen table, but his imagination was taller than the house."
Hoang's imagination can turn teapots into dragons and shadows into demons. It can also turn an ordinary day into a day of trouble. The day he throws his ball at a dragon, Hoang breaks his gia truyen, or lucky teapot. Precious Good Fortune spills out of the teapot, and Bad Fortune is now loose in his family's home!
How can someone so small hope to vanquish such strong spirits and bring Good Fortune back into his home? Anxiously determined, Hoang tries, and readers will be cheered by his courage and resourcefulness.
This story of an engaging young hero gives readers a fascinating glimpse into the culture of one of America's newest immigrant populations.
