I love getting food from Mee Sum Pastry at Pike Place Market, but I’ve never tried their rice dumplings. I’ll let you know what I think next time I’m downtown!

Dear Ms. Houghton’s Class,
We talked about The Funny Little Woman and rice dumplings. Some of us have eaten rice dumplings before. We think we would like to read The Funny Little Woman. We are talking about our story of the week on our blog. Come join us!
