Yoko's Sushi Endpaers
Yoko, by Rosemary Wells; Scholastic Books; purchased by my daughter when we lived in Hawaii. Yoko is a sweet Japanese kitten girl who loves the sushi her mother packs in her bento lunches, but has to convince her mainland classmates that her food is tasty and not weird. My daughter, now 17, loves this book!
BTW, Rosemary Wells is the author/illustrator of the adorable Max and Ruby (rabbit) series!
