Yoomi hates stinky, spicy kimchi-the pickled cabbage condiment served at Korean meals. So her brothers call her a baby and refuse to play with her. Yoomi is determined to eat kimchi. She tries to disguise it by eating it on a cookie, on pizza, and in ice cream. But that doesn't work. Then Grandma shows Yoomi how to make kimchi pancakes. This story about family, food, and a six-year-old "coming of age" has universal themes, and at the same time celebrates Korean culture. A kimchi pancake recipe and other back matter are included.

"Narrator Greta Jung's voice is warm and child friendly. Her pacing is steady. As the story opens, Jung's voice radiate empathy for Yoomi, a youngster who loves almost everything her grandmother cooks except kimchi. When Yoomi shares her dislike of it, her older brothers' taunts of "baby, baby!" and their refusal to let her join in a big-kid game carry all the bite of older siblings' disdain. Yoomi, however, soldiers on defiantly and implements her own plan. Listeners will appreciate the story's repetitive phrasing as Yoomi tries kimchi with pizza, chocolate chip cookies, and ice cream. The production concludes with notes about kimchi and a recipe for kimchi pancakes. A.R. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
