Growing up is an adventure, as Daniel and Lin soon share colorful travels. But being a good dog takes practice, as Daniel realizes when he barks up the wrong tree! Can Daniel prove his loyalty and dependability by helping Lin when she needs him the most?
Daniel's rollicking journey to discover his true nature will delight children and adults alike. Bright and dynamic illustrations will appeal to new parents, those interested in Asian culture, and dog lovers. This launches the annual Tales from the Chinese Zodiac series, which will introduce each of the 12 charismatic animals from the Chinese lunar calendar.
For nearly 5,000 years, the Chinese Zodiac has organized time in cycles of 12 years. Each year is traditionally represented by an animal that symbolizes unique qualities. Therefore, people born in the year of a particular animal have certain personalities and identify with their signs.
Now billions worldwide celebrate this two-week spring festival. For example, the San Francisco Chinese New Year parade began in 1853 and is now the largest celebration outside of Asia. So, welcome the new year by enjoying the entertaining adventures of The Year of the Dog!
