Praise

Other children’s books have told this tale, but Wang and Rippin’s version is especially attractive and conveys the look of ancient China. … Rippin paints with traditional Chinese ink on watercolor paper and created linocut “chops” — or stamps — showing the Chinese characters for each creature. Ochre backgrounds give the pages an aged look, but there’s something unmistakably modern and accessible about the alternately kind, curious and cunning expressions on the animals’ faces.
