Jin Jin the Dragon by Grace Chang

From the moment he hatches out of his golden, thousand-year-old egg, Jin Jin (who has yet to be named) has a problem:  he doesn't know what kind of creature he is and nobody else seems to know either.  On the advice of his first friends--Fish, Eagle and Snake, he sets out to find wise Old Turtle and Crance, who should be able to help.  As he embarks on his journey to answer the pressing question of what he is, Jin Jin gets his name, meets many friendly animals, and learns how to read.  In the end, through his own curiosity and courage, as well as with a little help from his friends, Jin Jin learns not only what he is, but also what he alone can do!

  • Beautifully illustrated in Chinese Water Colors. 
  • There are four additional pages about the Chinese Dragon and some Chinese Characters.

Jin Jin is SO cute December 10, 2008
Reviewer: JR from Monrovia CA  
I love Jin Jin.  He is so cute.  It is a pleasure to read this book many many times.  The story is his search to find out exactly what he is.  Since dragons look like parts of many other animals as he has scales claws etc.  When I have shown this book to my friends they fell in love with Jin Jin also and have purchased the book.
