The Year of the Rat: Tales from the Chinese ZodiacAsianArtMuseumStore
"Chin’s story brings the Year of the Rat to life with his endearing characters and an amusing storyline. The cartoon-like drawings by Miah Alcorn, who has partnered with Chin for all three books, bring enthusiasm and added energy to Chin’s tale and characters.
Though recommended for elementary students, “The Year of the Rat” is steeped in Asian culture and will appeal to readers of all ages. And even if readers cannot engage personally with the traits of the rat, they will certainly be able to identify with Ralph’s feats and struggles.” — Paper Tigers
