    I’m lucky enough to have a Rabbit living at home...too clever by far sometimes, but thank goodness he’s nimble and resourceful, too, because like Rosie, he enjoys those run-for-your-life adventures way too much!” - Smithsonian Book Blog

    I love rabbits, obviously, so 'The Year of the Rabbit' a sweet story about Rosie, a rabbit with extra-long ears, was right up my alley. Written by Oliver Chin with fantastic illustrations by Justin Roth, this book is another great Immedium release. A tale of friendship, bravery, and why sometimes its good to be just a little different, Rosie will hop her way right into your heart." Tokyo Bunnie

    "This bright and playful story makes the ancient tradition of the Chinese zodiac accessible to children everywhereThe Year of the Rabbit is a timely way for the youngest readers to get acquainted with this aspect of Chinese tradition."Paper Tigers

    The author/illustrator team of Oliver Chin and Justin Roth, who have delighted us with their zodiac books and pirate stories, are back with another story based on the animals of the Chinese zodiac. The Year of the Rabbit is not first-baby-book reading, but it will still look cute on the nursery bookshelf. Plus, the story about a little boy and a bunny will still be a fun read when that baby is old enough to be all ears at story time. Sorry, couldn't resist." Cool Mom Picks

    Move over Bugs Bunny. 2011 brings on the Year of the Rabbit, and Oliver Chin adds another adventurous Tale from the Chinese Zodiac to his collection, The Year of the Rabbit. This tale introduces Rosie the Rabbit, who is born with super long ears, which brings her both misfortune and fortune. As luck would have it, a boy named Jai, whose grandmother would rather eat Rosie for dinner after getting caught raiding her garden, saves Rosie. Later on, it’s Rosie who returns the favor to Jai in this fast-paced animated story. It definitely has a comic book flavor to it....Chin continues to creatively reveal the virtues of the animals of the Chinese Zodiac through his series.” - BookDads
