Review: The Year of the Monkey


"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."
