Most days the best thing about being Ruby is everything . Like when she's the star of her own backyard magic show. Or when she gives a talk at the school safety assembly on the benefits of reflective tape. Or when she rides the No. 3 bus all the way to Chinatown to visit GungGung and PohPoh.
And then there are the days when it's very hard to be Ruby. Like when her mom suggests Chinese school on Saturdays . Or when her little brother, Oscar, spills all of Ruby's best magician secrets. Or when her parents don't think she's old enough to drive!
Come along with Ruby Lu in her chapter-book debut -- which even includes a flip book of a magic trick -- and share the good and the not-so-good days with an (almost) eight-year-old Asian-American kid.

Ruby Lu is almost eight. She falls in and out of love with her baby brother Oscar. When he starts giving away the secrets of her magic tricks, she has to ban him from her shows. Each chapter shows us a new aspect of Ruby Lu's life. I am certain many early readers will enjoy getting to know her. Love the illustrations!
