Product description

Review

"Wang's story thrills but doesn't threaten: Chau's wonderfully vivid watercolors give the monster doe eyes and a round body that make him seem like a cranky, overgrown teddy bear, and Wang shares cultural information about the Chinese New Year with the lightest of touches."―Publishers Weekly starred review



"Alina Chau's vibrant depictions of Shanghai’s cityscape, docks, and marketplaces surround an adorably wide-eyed Xingling as she saves the day in bunny slippers, merging old and new traditions while celebrating the spirit of the season."―
Foreword Reviews

"This tale of New Year's high jinks has enough information to be enjoyed by those who have never encountered the holiday. A fun read-aloud that’s sure to induce giggles."―
School Library Journal --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
