She rolled up a secret treasure inside each piece.” Yoko brings in sushi for her school lunch, but her classmates tease her because of the raw fish and green seaweed, “Yuck-o-rama!” In response to Yoko’s devastation, her teacher organises an International Food Day. The students bring in a special dish from their own cultural background to share.
