Reviews

An animated introduction to Chinese culture and folklore, Christopher Corr's The Great Race: Story of the Chinese Zodiac fuses bright colors and lively characters. The wise Jade Emperor's plan to measure time motivates the entire animal kingdom to take action. Find out who is playful, gentle, sneaky, or lucky, and who misses out entirely, as a horse, monkey, dragon, rat, ox, tiger, and others compete for a place of honor on the newly created calendar.
