And they’re off! Race along with Rat, Monkey, Dragon and their companions as they join the Emperor’s race! Who will win the ultimate honour of having the first year of the zodiac calendar named after them? This lively book retells the story of the origins of the Chinese zodiac, backed up by simple notes on Chinese astrology and festivals. The vivid pictures incorporate numbers in Chinese script, while readers are encouraged to participate by discovering the animal sign of their own birth year.
“Prepared in collaged papers with acrylic and printed backgrounds, Wilson’s creatively stylized folk art gives this retelling of an ancient legend a distinctive look.” Publisher’s Weekly
