    March 1, 2017

    PreS-Gr 2-In the 12th and final installment of the series, Chin introduces Ray, a young rooster excited to learn about the world around him. After a neighboring pig sees a phoenix, Ray and his human friend Ying embark on a quest to find the fabled bird. Along the way, they meet all the other animals of the zodiac, who point them in the right direction. Even after they return home, their successful journey always reminds Ray to "fly high and dig deep." With bright, bold illustrations and text in English and simplified Chinese characters, readers will enjoy Ray's infectious, can-do spirit and optimism. His growing confidence is conveyed as his occasional "cock-a-doodle-doos" get louder until a bold one greets the phoenix. VERDICT Meeting all of the zodiac animals makes a fitting end to the series, but this volume still stands on its own. Like previous installments, this offers a fun take on the lunar year's animal in a story that works year-round.-Jennifer Rothschild, Arlington County Public Libraries, VA
