Product description

Review

'Prepared in collaged papers with acrylic and printed backgrounds, Wilson's creatively stylized folk art gives this retelling of an ancient legend a distinctive look.' --Publisher's Weekly

'Thirteen creatures in China have come to the river to join in the Emperor's race. This work is a retelling of the story of the Chinese Zodiac, with endnotes on Chinese astrology and festivals. It features illustrations, which incorporate numbers in Chinese script. It is useful for classroom and library use.' --LoveReading4Kids

'In this retelling of the ancient legend, Casey maintains the pace well. Back matter includes information about the Chinese calendar in general, as well as the more specific Dragon Boat Festival and Moon Festival. The book is a visual treat, with illustrations in simple collage designs on acrylic and painted backgrounds placed in such a way as to keep the eye engaged and moving. The palette is a pleasing mix of intense and muted tones. An attractive addition for most collections.' --School Library Journal

This is her first project with Barefoot Books. Anne Wilson has an MA in Illustration from St Martin's College of Art, London. She has been an illustrator for several years, working on Barefoot Books' Storytime: First Tales for Sharing (978184148344) and We're Sailing Down the Nile (9781846860393) She gains much of her inspiration and use of colour from her travels.
