"Do you know anyone who is honest, loyal and faithful but completely stubborn? The Year of the Dog could explain it all. With Oliver Chin's warm-fuzzy writing and Jeremiah Alcorn's spunky illustrations, the Year of the Dog is cuter than ever." - Hyphen Magazine "The Year Of The Dog: Tales From The Chinese Zodiac is a picture book about a puppy born on New Years' Day, who explores his surroundings with the companionship of Lin, the little girl next door. A whimsical tale of confusion and adventure, as Lin and the puppy meet the other animals of the Chinese zodiac, some in their imagination, and some in real life...The cartoony and angular art style captures the eagerness of the young dog perfectly, in this upbeat astrological tale." - Midwest Book Review "It's about a boisterous but well-meaning puppy, Daniel, protecting his best friend (an adventurous little girl named Lin), and is unfazed by almost all the creatures that lurk in the forest behind Lin's house.
