The Book

This collection of six laugh-out-loud stories is sure to tickle the funny bone of fans and new readers alike.

“Fans of Ling and Ting will be delighted to see a few nods to previous adventures, while new readers will want to get to know these funny sisters better. A winning addition to a delightfully fun series.” —School Library Journal, Starred Review

  3. Hi! Thank you for posting these great resources! Ling & Ting are two of my favorite characters and my awesome co-worker always puts me first on the hold list when a new Ling & Ting book comes out, but I’ve never thought about using the books as a writing prompt before. I’m excited to inspire some silly stories at our next writing program!
