What's The Nian Monster About

Publisher Summary

Tong tong! The legendary Nian monster has returned at Chinese New Year. With horns, scales, and wide, wicked jaws, Nian is intent on devouring Shanghai, starting with Xingling! The old tricks to keep him away don’t work on Nian anymore, but Xingling is clever. Will her quick thinking be enough to save the city from the Nian Monster?

5.5

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.
