The Story of the New Year Beast / Nián Shòu (Chinese & English)

Author(s): Xue Lin; Jin Jie Ye (Illustrator)

Picture Books | Chinese

From very ancient times there have been many different ideas about what the New Year Beast looks like. Some people say it has a giant head like a lion, but with a huge curved horn on top, and that it has very long hair. Its body is very big and stronger than an elephant. A scary green light glows from its eyes. Its claws are like sickles and its mouth is terribly huge. Where does this creepy New Year Beast come from? Is it from the sea or from somewhere below the mountains? And why does the Beast appear at the time of New Year?
