Grandpa decides it is time for his granddaughter Mei to work some of her own magic to make noodles for the Emperor's birthday. Mei is unsure of herself. She asks to borrow some of her grandfather's magic, but he tells her she has all the magic she needs. She works hard and finds a way to make the noodles.

ILLUSTRATIONS: The illustrations appear to be done in watercolor. They are very colorful and full of many details of Chinese life as well as fantasy aspects.
