Ling and Ting are twins. They have the same brown eyes. They have the same pink cheeks. They have the same happy smiles.

Ling and Ting stick together, whether they are making dumplings, getting their hair cut, or practicing magic tricks. But looks are deceiving. People can be very different, even if they look exactly the same.

    Ling and Ting are sisters and look alike, so everyone thinkg they are exactly the same. You can find out how they are different in the chapter-like stories told in the book. My favorite is the last one. "
