San Francisco, California- January 15, 2010 - Immedium, Inc., proudly announces the publication of The Year of the Tiger: Tales from the Chinese Zodiac, written by Oliver Chin and illustrated by Justin Roth. This is the fifth story in Immedium's popular children's picture book series on the twelve charismatic animals of the Chinese New Year. The adventures of the young tiger cub Teddy will amuse children and adults alike.

2010 is the Year of the Tiger! Born into royalty, the young prince Teddy is warned by the King and Queen to steer clear of humans who are intruding into their wild domain. However, curiosity compels this cat to befriend the girl Su. But when each camp doesn't want to cross the other's tracks, can Teddy prove the jungle is big enough for both man and beast?

This latest adventure in the Tales from the Chinese Zodiac follows The Year of the Ox (2009), The Year of the Rat (2008), The Year of the Pig (2007) and The Year of the Dog (2006). . Each book features a unique cast from the Chinese lunar calendar. Each year is represented by an animal who symbolizes special qualities, and people traditionally identify with the personality of the sign in their birth year.
