This book is the Michael L. Printz Award winner for 2007. Look on the golden cover of this new comic book/graphic novel into the bewildered eyes of a young boy gripping a Transformer toy. Jin Wang moves into a new neighborhood where he is one of only a few Asians. Negative perceptions flog him daily. He encounters ignorant bullies like Timmy who welcome him to his new school by publicly saying, "My momma says Chinese people eat dogs." Jin changes his name to Danny in a parallel with the great Chinese fable of the Monkey King. Neither wish to accept defeat. A third story within the book introduces an extremely stereotyped cousin visiting from China. The three tales intertwine.
