Description


Caldecott Medal-winning author and illustrator Ed Young brings an ancient Chinese folktale to life in the children's picture book Cat and Rat.

To select the animals of the zodiac, the Jade Emperor has called for a race between all the animals with the first twelve winners honored by having years named after them.

Cat and Rat were once the best of friends--until this contest made them the worst of enemies.
