Praise for The Year of the Rooster


"The Year of the Rooster is a brilliant addition to the Tales from the Chinese Zodiac series by Oliver Chin. The book explores different aspects of friendship through captivating artistry. The abundance of humor and moral lessons will surely delight parents, children, and teachers alike.”
— Keira Pride, Head Librarian, Stratford School, CA

"Children will love the energy of both the narrative and the animation-inspired pictures in The Year of the Monkey – and alongside the humour there is a depth to the story, as young readers observe how Max doesn’t give up when he realises that Jianzi is harder than he first thought and also learns to save his mischief for playtime. The book is another great addition to the Tales from the Zodiac series, as well as a thoroughly enjoyable stand-alone story for this Year of the Monkey and beyond."

":o) Love The Year of the Rooster! Great message, wonderful use of figurative language."
- Marla Conn, Read-Ability

"I read The Year of the Monkey to my two young neighbors, Lilly and John, who knew nothing about the Chinese New Year or the Chinese zodiac. They loved the story and the characters and wanted to know more about the Monkey King and the other animals of the zodiac... this is the kind of story that works well when it comes to teaching kids about cultures other than their own, as I discovered with Lilly and John. They particularly liked the illustrations by Kenji Ono. I also found them to be fun and colorful, having the same level of energy that Max has. Now, the kids want to read all of Oliver Chin's Chinese zodiac tales."
