Description
Poor Kuai Kang! The youngest in his family, he never gets enough to eat. Then one day he comes up with a brilliant plan: He will use sticks to grab the food when it's still too hot to touch. Before long, his brother and entire family are eating with sticks. Soon comes a big wedding the whole family will attend. Along with many gifts, the boys each bring a pair of sticks. Will the chopsticks be a hit? Or will Kuai get in the biggest trouble of his life? This humorous tale of how chopsticks may have been invented includes an author's note on how to use chopsticks and chopstick etiquette.
