Publisher Comments:

A clever fox shows how small creatures must live by their wits.

A boastful boar learns the hard way that pride invites calamity.

A wise dragon teaches that the more you know, the more you know there is to know.

Each of the fables in this collection about the twelve animals of the Chinese zodiac contains a jewel of wisdom: while readers enjoy the amusing stories, they can ponder a universal truth.

With playful, richly colored illustrations, these tales are like fortune cookies: sweet treats with meaningful messages.
