The Dragon New Year Book

A Chinese Legend

By David Bouchard

Paintings by Zhing-Yang Huang


Every spring, a clash of cymbals, a splash of colorful fireworks, and the Dragon Dance herald the coming of the Chinese New Year. But how, in the mists of time, did these celebrations begin? This charmingly woven story of fact and folklore explains how the  Chinese New Year traditions came to be. Set in the words of a wise grandmother passing on her traditions to her adored granddaughter, it is a story of courage and kindness, love and revenge, that will delight both children and adults. Recommended for ages 6 and up.
