Product description

Celebrate Chinese New Year and learn how every animal earned its place in the Chinese zodiac by taking part in the Great Race! Discover who will come first to win the ultimate prize, and find out why Cat will never forgive his friend Rat in this ancient folk tale that has been passed from generation to generation.

Praise for Deep in the Woods, the previous title from Christopher Corr: ’... the book looks like a delectable candy box… There is a lesson here – about friendship, and sharing – but the book never feels plodding or pedantic… Which may be why the lesson just goes down like the truth.’
