About this title

Synopsis:

"The Year of the Pig (the sequel to 2006's Year of the Dog), is the perfect gift to any new parents you encounter this year." - SFist

"The Year of the Pig tells the story of Patty, a pig who is criticized for her piggish behavior. In the end, though, her devil-may-care, impulsive side wins the day...[The artwork is] reminiscent of the work of Chuck Jones, the animator behind such Warner Bros. cartoon characters as Bugs Bunny. They look like animation stills...With his new series, Chin wants to bring the ancient stories of the Chinese zodiac to life in a modern context.” - San Francisco Chronicle

The piglet Patricia explores the farm with her parents and Farmer Wu. Growing up is a learning process, as Patty gets advice from her uncles, aunts, and cousins. But being a sensible pig takes practice, as Patty realizes when Farmer Wu loses his jade ring! Can Patty demonstrate her best qualities when others think they aren’t?

Patty’s amusing journey to appreciate her true nature will delight children, new parents, those interested in Asian culture, and lovers of classic pig tales such as Babe and Charlotte's Web.

"The characters were enchanting, the stories engrossing And I liked how educational the books are, both of which have a description at the end of what it means to be born in the Year of the Dog (or Year of the Pig). The illustrations are extraordinary pieces of art. I can’t wait to get each of the books in this series.” - The Opinionated Parent

"With its delightful narrative and appealing artwork, The Year of the Pig reminds us of the many porcine qualities we would do well to cultivate in ourselves: intelligence, curiosity, sincerity and generosity. How wise are those who learn from pigs rather than eat them!" - Sy Montgomery, author of The Good Good Pig
