Thirteen creatures in China have come to the river to join in the Emperor's race. Who will win the ultimate honour of having the first year of the new calendar named after them? This work is an easy-to-read retelling of the story of the Chinese Zodiac, with accessible endnotes on Chinese astrology and festivals. The illustrations incorporate numbers in Chinese script - ideal for classroom and library use. It encourages reader interaction as children discover the animal sign of their birth year. The recent praise for "Storytime" (1-84148-344-3): 'Anne Wilson's illustrations are warm and captivating, drawing the reader and the listener into each picture.' This work is locally marketed for author Dawn Casey in Sussex and illustrator Anne Wilson in Reading.
