2018 is the Year of the Dog! Daniel is an adventurous puppy whose journey celebrates the new year. This revised edition features a bilingual Chinese translation.

The puppy Daniel explores the world with his parents and the girl Lin, and learns how to become "man's best friend.” Growing up is an adventure, but being a good dog takes practice, as Daniel realizes when he barks up the wrong tree! Can Daniel prove his loyalty and dependability by helping Lin when she needs him the most?

Befriending people and the other zodiac animals, can Daniel show his true colors? Illustrating expressive characters and vibrant action, artist Jeremiah Alcorn creates an inviting new world for readers to explore. Tales from the Chinese Zodiac is a popular annual children’s book series showcasing the twelve charming animals that embody the Chinese New Year.
