Praise
"Besides celebrating intergenerational and interracial friendships, and presenting interesting details about the silkworm life cycle, the book introduces many issues relevant to budding adolescents."
"There are big issues in Park's latest novel--conservation, prejudice, patriotism, biology, and more. But the Newbery-winning writer never allows them to swamp the story; in fact, it's the compelling characters and their passionate differences and commitments that drive the plot."
"A rich work that treats serious issues with warmth, respect and a good deal of humor."
"This tale will have wide appeal."
"Park has a sensitive ear for the nuances of self-doubt and burgeoning self-awareness that permeate junior-high experience...."
From the Publisher
Annotation When seventh graders and best friends Patrick and Julia are struggling to pick an animal to raise for their state fair project--pigs and chickens aren't exactly apartment material--Julia's mother suggests silkworms. Though Patrick is immediately excited, Julia (who is Korean) worries that silkworms too Asian, and not American enough. Their first hurdle is finding mulberry leaves, the only thing silk worms will eat. In the beginning, Julia does everything she can to slow down Project Mulberry, but she soon changes her mind, and learns that she can combine the two cultures with the help of a little research and some imagination. In an interesting twist, many of the chapters are followed by dialog between Julia and the author. The character airs her complaints about the plot, and asks questions, while Ms. Park explains her choices. Winner of the 2005 Chicago Tribune Prize for Young Adult Fiction.
First Line Patrick and I became friends because of a vegetable. Not just any vegetable. A cabbage. And not just any old cabbage.
