Overview

No Year of the Cat by Mary Dodson Wade, Nicole Wong


The Emperor has a problem. He wants his people to

remember the year in which his son was born. But there

is no way to keep track of the years. So the Emperor devises

a race in which animals will cross a river. The first twelve

animals to reach the opposite side will have a year named

after them. Thus, the people will be able to remember the

years and the events that occurred. And so the race is set.

Rat, knowing he is no match for the rushing water,

schemes with Cat on how to cross the river. Together the

two convince Ox to carry them across. But halfway across

the river, Rat shows his true colors. Will Cat make it to

the other side? Which animals will have a year named

after them?

Accompanied by exquisite watercolor artwork, this

charming story explains the origins of the Chinese

calendar.
