In this fun afternoon adventure, Carrie goes around the neighborhood looking for her brother, who is late for dinner. She stops at each neighbor's house to ask if they have seen him, and at each stop she discovers that although each family is from a different country, everyone makes a rice dish at dinnertime. If you're hungry after reading about all of these yummy dishes around from around the world, you're in luck, the book includes recipes at the end so you can make them at home with your family!
