"This set of 12 zodiac animal stories is a unique collection of courage, bravery, loyalty, and family adventures. Each book uses the character and personality of a Chinese zodiac sign to weave an entertaining tale of personal discovery and understanding."
—Warren Wright, Librarian, www.cais.org


Max the monkey "Our children's collection was never complete without the latest 'installment' of Tales from the Chinese Zodiac. These books are a wonderful way to celebrate the New Year and to enjoy delightful escapades year round."
—Joan Mead, Librarian, www.colapublib.org

"With themes that include cooperation, friendship, creativity and even a dose of engineering, this delightful picture book [Sheep] is an excellent choice to share with young children. The soft watercolor illustrations by Alina Chau are a perfect fit for the story."
- Baltimore County Public Library

"I can easily see [the Monkey] on school library bookshelves as its subject matter is really quite universal. The book is filled with strong action verbs, some which may be new to youngsters. These wonderful examples convey how words, complemented by fun illustrations, can add to the overall reading experience even make reading aloud for parents enjoyable and entertaining."
- Good Reads with Ronna

"Oliver Chin has a real knack for retelling the ancient Chinese zodiac stories for today's modern reader, and making them fun, energetic and understandable to anyone not already familiar with the tales, as well as those who are. And once again, the [Rooster is] totally supported by artist Juan Calle's dynamic, colorful illustrations."
