A clever little girl outsmarts the Nian monster, who is no longer scared away by the loud noises, fire and color red that have kept him at bay for so long, with the help of her community and some very special New Years' traditions. I love the critical thinking and problem solving it demonstrates, the traditional (almost folk-talesy) way it's told, and of course, the beautiful illustrations.
