Join the animals of the zodiac as they make noodles for a party in this festive book from an award-winning author and food editor.

It’s almost time for the party! One-by-one all the animals of the zodiac go up the hill, each one carrying an ingredient. Horse trots up the hill with a big wok. Goat strolls up the hill with wild onions.
Except for snake, that is. It’s his birthday! All of his friends have prepared long noodles to celebrate his long and happy life. Simple text is paired with delightful, friendly art in this joyous look at the Chinese tradition of preparing long noodles to celebrate birthdays, the New Year, and other festive occasions.
A kid-friendly recipe for how to make Dragon Beard Noodles, a dish popular in Northern China, is included as well as a note on the Chinese Zodiac.


”Cute and delightful. . . ."—Kirkus Reviews

"Simple text from Compestine reliably describes how each animal makes the journey ('Rooster strutted,' 'Dragon flew'), and Pang dedicates a festive full-spread landscape to each animal's trek."—Publishers Weekly

"This playful take on a child-friendly topic will resonate with kids ­familiar with Chinese customs and will inform and delight others. A ­worthy addition to multicultural resources that will shine during Chinese New Year and throughout all the seasons."—School Library Journal
