Picture Books

A little mouse won the race against all other animals and gave his name to the very first year. Cat felt it was not fair. Water buffalo was unhappy when he saw the result, and all the other skilful and strong animals were so upset as well. Only Mouse was very happy, simply wanting to enter the race and to try his best to run and run, even though he was so tiny and his legs were much shorter than those of other animals. And then – how on earth did Mouse become the first? In the Eastern world, this well-known little story tells how the twelve animals were chosen for the name of each year. Why is the first year called Mouse, and why are cats always the enemies of mice? Combining traditional Chinese painting style with modern elements, this is a lively and charming Chinese classical fairy-tale
