“This brisk, bright family story effectively conveys a universal experience through a very specific cultural lens.” –Kirkus Reviews

No Kimchi For Me!

Written by Aram Kim
Published by Holiday House

Yoomi hates stinky, spicy kimchi the pickled cabbage condiment served at Korean meals. So her brothers call her a baby and refuse to play with her. Yoomi is determined to eat kimchi. She tries to disguise it by eating it on a cookie, on pizza, and in ice cream. But that doesn’t work. Then Grandma shows Yoomi how to make kimchi pancakes. This story about family, food, and a six-year-old coming of age has universal themes, and at the same time celebrates Korean culture. A kimchi pancake recipe and other back matter are included.
