The Great Race: The Story of the Chinese Zodiac by Christopher Corr (Frances Lincoln Children's Books)

Did you know that this year it's the Chinese Year of the Dog? Yes indeed, and on February 16th there'll be huge celebrations to usher in Chinese New Year.

We've always been interested in finding out a bit more about this amazing custom, and Christopher Corr's new book "The Great Race" details the ancient folk tale of how the Chinese Zodiac came to be, and what all the different animals contribute to this awesome story.

Find out why Cat will never ever forgive Rat, find out the sort of crazy tricks Monkey got up to, and learn all about the other animals and symbols that contribute to China's rich cultural heritage in this fabulously presented book.

"The Great Race" by Christopher Corr is out now, published by Frances Lincoln Children's Books (kindly supplied for review).
