Runaway Rice Cake This picture book delivers a moral about selfishness and sharing in the context of the Chinese New Year's Eve. A poor family give pursuit when their special rice cake leaps out of the pan and runs away. It collides with an old woman to whom they offer their treat, a generosity that is rewarded when they return home to find the Kitchen God has worked magic in their favour. A recipe and an afterword on the Chinese New Year conclude this warm-hearted tale.
