Happy New Year!
We ring in 2013 and welcome The Year of the Snake on February 10th. Suzie the snake is our newest heroine and Lily is her BFF!
This the eighth adventure in our annual series Tales from the Chinese Zodiac. Kids and adults enjoy our fresh spin on how each animal embodies endearing personal qualities, and this Asian cultural tradition is more widely celebrated than ever before.
Author Oliver Chin and artist Jennifer Wood will present the story at schools, libraries, and museums. Jennifer illustrated 2012's popular The Year of the Dragon and has done a bang up job creating a new cast of characters and world for readers to explore.
