Jim doesn't know what to do when his teacher tells him to write an essay about his Grandpop. There's just nothing nice to say about the meanest man in Chinatown.
Jim manages to scribble something down and go to bed. But imagine his surprise when he wakes up to find a green, four-armed imp peering down at him. When the imp starts to eat his homework, Jim knows he's in for trouble.
Then the imp threatens Grandpop, too. What can they do? Jim's just a kid. And Grandpop's an old man. Or is he? After all, this is Chinatown, where statues speak, stone lions prowl the streets, and an elderly man turns into a supernatural warrior. Join Jim and his Grandpop on a wild, magical ride that teaches Jim there's more to Grandpop and Chinatown than meets the eye.Two-time Newbery Honor author Laurence Yep interweaves fantasy, humor, and a celebration of family into this entertaining tale.
