“With delightful charm and simplicity, Demi offers a lovely look at the Chinese New Year.”—School Library Journal
From the Inside Flap
"In a book that is itself a celebration, Demi explains the rituals and ideas behind the Chinese New Year festival. The last 15 days of the old year are spent cleaning and preparing ('Wash your hair and get a new haircut. Pay the debts that you owe and collect what is owed to you!'). On the eve of the new moon, a special feast is prepared. . . . The first 15 days of the new year are spent celebrating with lion dances, firecrackers, and other activities. Demi's characteristic tiny, lively figures illustrate each page, with several spreads devoted to small, labeled pictures identifying things associated with the holiday. Infused with joy and filled with information."--"BooklistSee all Product description
