Happy New Year/Kung-Hsi Fa-Ts’ai!

written and illustrated by Demi

Examines the customs, traditions, foods, and lore associated with the celebration of Chinese New Year

Tiny figures cavort through the pages bringing in-depth support and meaning to a text brimming with information. An excellent reference rather than read-aloud. Includes brief information about each of the animals in the Chinese Zodiac, copies of the good luck writings in both English and Chinese characters, lists of special foods and reasons for serving  them, and representations of favorite gods, animals, and symbols.
