The Year of the Ox
"Olivia the Pig has got nothing on Olivia the Ox: As you're looking for an inexpensive one size fits all baby gift for all those friends of yours having kids this year, consider The Year of the Ox, written by CMP fave Oliver Chin and illustrated by Miah Alcorn, the fourth book in the wonderful Tales from the Chinese Zodiac series."
- Cool Mom Picks
"Author Oliver Chin's latest Chinese Zodiac book for kids takes off...the adorable tale of Olivia, a small calf with big pretensions, is being read in classrooms, libraries and at Lunar New Year celebrations around the Bay."
- Contra Costa Times
"Chin's keen sense of humor and Alcorn's hilarious cartoon-like illustrations will appeal to young children, through and through. Olivia's story introduces the personality attributes associated with those born in the Year of the Ox while showing, in an engaging and playful manner, that it takes determination, patience and hard work to be true to oneself."
- Paper Tigers
"Like the typical ox, Olivia is hard-working, dependable, and a little stubborn. It's a coming-of-age tale of an ox who discovers her best qualities. The illustrations are charming"
