Perfect to Teach Satire!

This book is a great example of satire but needs to be accompanied by explanations as to why the inappropriate language and stereotypical images shown throughout. The book is a fabulous example of the difference between old "long ago and far away" tales of Chinese and a current, here and now struggles of Chinese-Americans.
