Talk with the Animals!
“There will be those who have scooped up the books as they emerged each year: but the good news is that it really doesn’t matter when you discover these fun stories – they are extra special in their own year of the Chinese cycle or when their particular animal is significant, but young children can now enjoy all twelve stories, all year round.” - Mirrors, Windows, Doors
“Tales From the Chinese Zodiac is a series of 12 books about these iconic calendar denizens, starting with The Year of the Dog…each book targets four- to eight-year-olds and stars a baby animal coming of age and learning how to personify the year it represents.” - Kidscreen Magazine
[The artwork is] reminiscent of the work of Chuck Jones, the animator behind such Warner Bros. cartoon characters as Bugs Bunny. They look like animation stills…. With his new series, Chin wants to bring the ancient stories of the Chinese zodiac to life in a modern context.” - San Francisco Chronicle
"Our children's collection was never complete without the latest 'installment' of Tales from the Chinese Zodiac. These books are a wonderful way to celebrate the New Year and to enjoy delightful escapades year round." - Joan Mead, Librarian, County of Los Angeles Public Library
“[An] imaginative menagerie of endearing characters, whose stories embody the chief characteristics of each animal of the Chinese Zodiac in turn. These are also tales of friendship and finding a place in the world.” - Paper Tigers
