This sweet hardcover boxed set includes:
Amy Wu and the Perfect Bao
Amy Wu and the Patchwork Dragon
Amy Wu and the Warm Welcome
Amy Wu and the Ribbon Dance

A writer of books for teens and children, she spends her free time scribbling poetry, taking photographs, and climbing atop things she shouldn’t. You can learn more about her at
