The Year of the Snake
by Oliver Chin
illustrated by Jennifer Wood

"The heartwarming story about overcoming misconceptions resounds in any culture. It also doesn't hurt that the heroine is playful and enjoys being a little girl's jump rope. Despite the scales and fangs, Suzie is a snake with a heart of gold."
- Sampan
