Year of the Cat
Rat won the Great Race, which determined the order of the Chinese zodiac calendar. But he did it using trickery that left poor Cat behind. Now, Rat wants to make amends . . . or so he says. And so Rat, Pig, Dog, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Horse, Snake, Dragon, Tiger, Rabbit, and Ox set off to apologize to Cat. Yet somehow, by the end of the journey, Rat is the only one left. And Cat has a surprise for him. Richard Ho’s sly and perfectly paced text unfolds an exciting animal adventure, full of nods to the traditional Great Race tale—and with an unexpected, delicious twist. Jocelyn Li Langrand’s detailed and expressive illustrations bring the journey to vibrant life. Together, they are an homage to the traditional Great Race tale and a funny, subversive update for modern young readers. Every year is the year of the Cat!
