When she discovered the Chinese zodiac animals as a child, she told her mom she wanted her year to be the Year of the Rabbit--and it was!

Reviews

"In the ancient Chinese tale of the Great Race, Cat did not win a spot in the zodiac because Rat pushed her into a river right before the finish line. Now, Rat is feeling guilty. He enlists the other animals in the zodiac to 'find the one they left behind.' . . . A colorful and daring adventure, making dynamic use of perspective . . . Ho and Langrand have created a whimsical sequel to the Chinese folktale . . . An enjoyable twist on the timeless Chinese zodiac tale." -- Kirkus Reviews
