    One thought on “Child Octopus: Edible Adventures in Hong Kong (Zip and Eat Pocket Reader Book 1)”

    1. Amster-Burton (and his charming daughter, Iris) knows how to make you "wish you were here" - first for Japan with his "Pretty Good Number One" and now on to Hong Kong with "Child Octopus".This short book is a perfect introduction to the general geography of Hong Kong and provides a crash course of some available foods in various neighbourhoods there. While definitely not a comprehensive tour guide, "Child Octopus" should provide visitors who will be spending a short amount of time in Hong Kong w [...]

    2. Pretty Good Number One is BetterThis is definitely a fun and interesting read with many travel tidbits to file away for a future trip to Hong Kong, although this book didn't feel as complete or as organized as Pretty Good Number One. More food photos and descriptions accompanied names of restaurants this time around, but stories conveying the cultural pulse of Hong Kong seemed lacking.The anecdotes were spare, especially when I was looking forward to more accounts of day-to-day life from an Amer [...]

    3. Amster-Burton's trademark zany humor in Hong Kong, with his charming daughter along for the trip. When I say I want to visit a place for the food, this is the type of excursion I'm thinking of: wandering by random stalls, enjoying dishes both famed and off the beaten path, trying not to be a completely clueless foreigner and yet marveling at the cultural differences.The brevity's only regrettable in that I'd happily devour more of Amster-Burton's writing.

    4. Enjoyable read about a father taking his daughter on international food adventures. I also enjoyed his last book, "Pretty Good Number One," about eating and living in Japan and look forward to reading future works of his.

    5. Quick, fun read. I particularly enjoyed because I read it while visiting Hong Kong, & Amster-Burton has a real knack for explaining the food culture in a way that is both respectful & humorous. Also, his daughter sounds absolutely adorable.
