"Gung Hay Fat Choy!" eight-year-old Nancy Drew said to her best friend Bess Marvin.
Bess sat down at her desk, which was across the aisle from Nancy's. The two girls were in Mrs. Reynolds's third-grade class at Carl Sandburg Elementary School. The first bell of the day was about to ring.
Bess frowned at Nancy. "Gung what?"
"It means 'Wishing you good fortune and happiness' in Chinese," Nancy explained. "That's what people say for Chinese New Year's. Mari taught me."
At that moment Mari Cheng walked into class. She gave Nancy and Bess a little wave.
The school bell jangled noisily. All the students took their seats. Mrs. Reynolds went to the front of the classroom and said, "Good morning, everyone!"
WHAT'S CHINESE NEW YEAR WITHOUT A DRAGON?
The third-grade classes at Nancy's school are learning about Chinese culture, and they'll celebrate the Chinese New Year with a special parade. The highlight of the parade will be a dragon costume. Nancy's class is making it out of feathers, sequins, gold tassels, and red silk. But right before the big day, the dragon disappears!
Nancy, Bess, and George are in the New Year's spirit. They've enjoyed a delicious feast at the home of their classmate Mari Cheng. She's even lent the girls special Chinese outfits to wear. But without the dragon, there will be no parade. And that makes Nancy roaring mad!
