Reviews




mama rabbit "[Review of The Year of the Tiger]: Chin finds unique characters to expose children to hints of Asian-American culture while creating engaging and readable stories.…These stories are cute and humorous while offering a lesson learning adventure. I can't express how much I recommend them as a classroom addition or for a home library...they would also be a great gift for expectant parents or loved ones who know their Chinese Zodiac sign."
- Teachers' Favorite Books for Students

"To learn the characteristics of this year's star animal, check out The Year of the Rabbit: Tales From the Chinese Zodiac, by Oliver Chin, with cartoon illustrations by Justin Roth. The latest in San Francisco author and publisher Chin's zodiac series centers on the curious rabbit Rosie. She likes to eat new things and meet new people, so she ventures into a vegetable garden and gets caught by a boy named Jai and his Po-Po (grandma). Boy and bunny get into some scrapes but become fast friends."
- San Francisco Chronicle

"The latest two offerings in Oliver Chin's series of Tales from the Chinese Zodiac, this year's The Year of the Snake and last year's The Year of the Dragon are welcome additions to this imaginative menagerie of endearing characters, whose stories embody the chief characteristics of each animal of the Chinese Zodiac in turn."
- Paper Tigers

"[Review of The Year of the Horse]: As she did in The Year of the Dragon and The Year of the Snake, illustrator Jennifer Wood continues to provide the same delightfully equitable page time for all the zodiac animals, adding another engaging level of 'hide-and-seek' for younger readers. Author Chin again introduces rollicking exploits to inspire and entertain, all the while celebrating the Asian culture that infuses our daily American lives. Here's to a happy, healthy, adventurous new year indeed!"
