Product description

The perfect way to celebrate Chinese New Year! How did twelve lucky animals earn their place in the Chinese Zodiac? They took part in the Great Race. And here’s your chance to watch them! See who comes first to win the ultimate prize – and why Cat will never forgive his friend Rat – in this ancient folk tale, passed from generation to generation.

  • A delightful first retelling of this timeless story
  • Beautifully bright artwork in a vibrant folk art style
  • Simple, clear text that is perfect for reading out loud
  • A charming first look at Chinese astrology and folklore

“Corr’s distinctive folk-art style gouache illustrations are fun, bright, and bold…. a good choice for classroom read-alouds.” School Library Journal

“This read-aloud story also provides a great stepping stone for introducing other cultural ideas to young children.” BookTrust

“Corr’s vignettes and spreads blaze with color… the animals seem to pop off the page.” Publishers Weekly
