Ruby is unlike most little girls in old China. Instead of aspiring to get married, Ruby is determined to attend university when she grows up, just like the boys in her family. Based upon the inspirational story of the author's grandmother and accompanied by richly detailed illustrations,Ruby's Wish is an engaging portrait of a young girl who's full of ambition and the family who rewards her hard work and courage.

Shirin Yim Bridges is the acclaimed author of several children's books as well as the publisher of Goosebottom Books. After living in many countries around the world, she now resides in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Sophie Blackall has illustrated twenty picture books as well as the bestselling Ivy + Bean series, and has written a few, too. She lives in Brooklyn, New York.

REVIEWS: [star] 'This understated tale takes Ruby?s predicament seriously while still celebrating her love of learning and her joyful personality.' ?Publishers Weekly, starred review 'Well crafted, admirable, and engaging. . . . A lovely read-aloud with illustrations to linger over.' ?School Library Journal '[This] quietly feminist story is complemented by illustrations as graceful as calligraphy strokes.' ?The Horn Book 'Ruby?s determined character will capture the audience?s imagination.' ?The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
