The Year of the Pig
"[The artwork is] reminiscent of the work of Chuck Jones, the animator behind such Warner Bros. cartoon characters as Bugs Bunny. They look like animation stills….With his new series, Chin wants to bring the ancient stories of the Chinese zodiac to life in a modern context."
- Paul Kilduff, San Francisco Chronicle
"The Year of the Pig (the sequel to 2006's Year of the Dog), is the perfect gift to any new parents you encounter this year."
"The characters were enchanting, the stories engrossing… And I liked how educational the books are, both of which have a description at the end of what it means to be born in the Year of the Dog (or Year of the Pig). The illustrations are extraordinary pieces of art. I can't wait to get each of the books in this series."
- The Opinionated Parent
"With its delightful narrative and appealing artwork, The Year of the Pig reminds us of the many porcine qualities we would do well to cultivate in ourselves: intelligence, curiosity, sincerity and generosity. How wise are those who learn from pigs rather than eat them!" -Sy Montgomery, author of The Good Good Pig
