Amy Wu celebrates Chinese New Year with her favorite family traditions in this sweet and brightly illustrated fifth installment in the Amy Wu picture book series.

Lunar New Year is Amy’s favorite holiday! Her family celebrates for two whole weeks, and she loves everything about it—the food, the decorations, and, most of all, the traditions! Amy’s favorite tradition is carrying her family’s lantern on Lantern Festival Day. Their lantern is special because every time Amy’s dad lights it, he’s reminded of his mother.

But when Amy accidentally crushes their family lantern, is her favorite tradition ruined for good?

About the Author

Kat Zhang loves traveling to places both real and fictional—the former have better souvenirs, but the latter allow for dragons, so it’s a tough choice. A writer of books for teens and children, she spends her free time scribbling poetry, taking photographs, and climbing atop things she shouldn’t. You can learn more about her at

Charlene Chua draws many things, from baos to dragons, and everything in between. When they are not drawing, they enjoy cooking, reading, and playing with their cats. Charlene grew up in Singapore, and now lives in Canada. Her favorite baos are still char siu baos, and her favorite dumplings are air-fryer wontons!
