Description Reviews
 
The book is about how the Chinese Zodiac was formed

How were the twelve animals chosen for the Chinese Zodiac?
And why does the rat come first? These, and other questions,
are answered in this hilarious version of the Chinese zodiac legend.
The breathtaking, colorful, "paper-cutting" illustrations will captivate young readers as the rollicking story leaps out before their very eyes!

Cute retelling of folktale August 8, 2012
Reviewer: Evan's Mom from Portland OR  
This is a great retelling of how the Zodiac animals were chosen. The story can be read to various ages.  My 3.5 year old won't understand morals that is introduced here but he gets the humor.  My 7 year old understand the greater implications of the storyline.  It is hard to find a bedtime story that pleases both age groups this is one of them.

children are facinated by ... July 15, 2006
Reviewer: Lena W. from Undisclosed  
children are facinated by the beautiful paper cut pictures.  The story is charming and a good resource for Chinese culture education.  I use it when I teach elementary age students.
