Check out what others are saying about Yuna’s Cardboard Castles:

“With its poetic language and beautiful imagery, this story of immigration and connection through play is a worthwhile ­addition to most collections.” – School Library Journal

“Most children will be able to identify with Yuna, as most have experienced a time in which they have been unable to communicate with someone yet were finally able to bridge that gap with a game or a shared interest. The message is powerful and the illustrations complement the story well. . . . Recommended.” – School Library Connection

About Marie Tang

Marie Tang was born in Hong Kong, raised in New York City, and was a resident of Shanghai for over a decade. The unique characters and neon lights of the “Big City” have been an ever-present source of inspiration for her. As a child, she was neither encouraged nor discouraged to read so when she discovered the world of books as a young adult, Marie couldn’t help but read, study, write, and read some more. She was fortunate enough to spend several years as a literacy teacher. This has given her some of her most prized possessions, memories of reading aloud to kids. Marie sees herself as hardworking, mindful, and blessed for all the amazing experiences she’s been allotted. Yuna’s Cardboard Castles is Marie’s debut book. A second book, Baba’s Peach Tree, is set to release shortly after. Her picture book manuscript, Tai Gong’s Celebration, won 2nd place in the 85th Annual Writers Digest Competition. Marie is a member of the SCBWI and an active participant in Julie Hedlund’s 12×12 Challenge.
