Reviews"Do you know anyone who is honest, loyal and faithful but completely stubborn? The Year of the Dog could explain it all. With Oliver Chin's warm-fuzzy writing and Jeremiah Alcorn's spunky illustrations, The Year of the Dog is cuter than ever."
- Hyphen Magazine
"Jeremiah Alcorn illustrates the book with expressive angular cartoon characters, capturing the emotions of the animals and animals on their adventures… he illustrates with humor and gentleness the traits of Patty: inquisitiveness, resilience, intelligence, stubbornness and courage. Patty's character, as well as the other animal and human characters in the book, shines through his simple bright cartoons...readers young and old will enjoy this journey through the remarkable Year of the Pig."
- ForeWord Magazine
"The cartoon-like drawings by Miah Alcorn, who has partnered with Chin for all three books, bring enthusiasm and added energy to Chin's tale and characters. Though recommended for elementary students, The Year of the Rat is steeped in Asian culture and will appeal to readers of all ages. And even if readers cannot engage personally with the traits of the Rat, they will certainly be able to identify with Ralph's feats and struggles."
- Paper Tigers
"Oliver Chin's spirited storytelling and Mia Alcorn's spot on characterization and subtle palette combine to bring Olivia and Mei in The Year of the Ox into rambunctious life."
- Belle Yang, author of Hannah Is My Name
