Drawing on the myth of the Chinese zodiac, The Animals of Chinese New Year follows twelve animals as they speed across a river, competing to represent the imminent new year in a race held by the Jade Emperor, the most powerful Chinese god. Each animal competes in its own unique way. The ox works hard, the tiger is brave, the dog smiles kindly, but who will win? Bright photographs of babies demonstrating the same traits as the animals in the story, complemented by traditional Chinese graphic elements, accompany Sookfong Lee's lively text.

Orca Book Publishers is pleased to offer this board book as a dual-language (English/Simplifed Chinese) edition.
