The Year of the Ox brings the richness of Chinese heritage to children of all ages." - KTVU, FOX News, Channel 2, San Francisco, CA
combine to bring Olivia and Mei in The Year of the Ox into rambunctious life." - Belle Yang, author
"The book has adorable illustrations and the storyline is a great lesson that any small person might not feel very mighty in the beginning, but if they wait long enough, their purpose will soon come clear. Stories like this always made me hopeful as a kid, and I think it's important that all children feel that they can make a difference, despite their age and size. I'm happy to see fresh illustrative style be mixed with an important, timeless message. Immedium has, once again, put out a book that is both great to look at, and important to share." - Tokyo Bunnie
"Like the typical ox, Olivia is hard-working, dependable, and a little stubborn. It's a coming-of-age tale of an ox who discovers her best qualities. The illustrations are charming" - Supah Cute
"Chin's keen sense of humor and Alcorn's hilarious cartoon-like illustrations will appeal to young children, through and through. Olivia's story introduces the personality attributes associated with those born in the Year of the Ox while showing, in an engaging and playful manner, that it takes determination, patience and hard work to be true to oneself." - Paper Tigers
page. Oliver Chin uses Olivia's story to illustrate some of the characteristics of the ox from the Chinese zodiac. The story also teaches children (hard working and dependable) that nobody's perfect and that nobody can be good at everything. It just takes time to discover what one's talents are." - Northwest Asian Weekly
