"Ashley's point, that all children are good at something, is well made and should be reassuring to young listeners. Brazell's colorful mixed-media illustrations reflect an urban environment with a fully international cast of characters. A good choice for children just starting school--appropriate for classroom story hours or for parent/child sharing."--"Booklist."

From the Back Cover:

Terry can tie up his shoes – Ling Sung can’t. Manjit can write her name but Ling Sung’s letters go all wrong and Sharon can button up her coat perfectly. Ling Sung doesn’t want to go back to school every again. But the next day at biscuit time Ling Sung does something amazing…

He uses two paintbrushes as chopsticks to pick up the biscuits. This is something that no-one else can do, not even the teachers, and Ling Sung feels very special indeed!
