"Lo brings his characteristic watercolor washes to this bilingual
English-Chinese picture book about animal-shaped kites. . . . this
is a visually rich guide to animals and an introduction to a
contemporary festival."-Publishers Weekly
"A stunning introduction and window into animal names and symbolism in Chinese culture."-Booklist
