The Dragon New Year: A Chinese Legend by David Bouchard, illustrated by Zhong-Yang Huang

Every spring, a clash of cymbals, a splash of colourful fireworks, and the Dragon Dance announce the beginning of the Chinese New Year. But how, in the mists of time, did these traditional celebrations begin? Join a wise, old grandmother and her innocent, young granddaughter in this charming and masterfully illustrated follow-up to David Bouchard and Zhong-Yang Huang's The Great Race. In The Dragon New Year, author Bouchard spins an enticing tale involving a monstrous sea dragon, a mother's sorrow, and a magical Buddha. Combined with bold and imaginative illustrations by acclaimed artist Huang, this story of courage and kindness, love and revenge will delight both children and adults alike.
