This new edition is revised with a new bilingual translation in simplified Chinese.
RBF Approved - We Tested, We Love: The illustrated children's book The Year of the Rat by Oliver Chin is super cute about a little rat who gets into trouble with the family of humans he lives with because he gnaws a little too much and hoards items he shouldn't be hoarding. Bright, colorful illustrations, a cute cast of characters and a lesson that sometimes we need to be true to ourselves made this a delightful read." - Rare Bird Finds

Ralph the rat explores the world with the boy Bing. But when Bing's birthday party goes awry, can Ralph rescue him using traits that others frowned upon?

The third in the popular series introduces the twelve charismatic animals from the Chinese calendar. 2008 is the Year of the Rat.

"This story is just so sweet and the illustrations have that beautiful classic cartoon feel. Makes me proud to be a rat!" - Coquette

One of Books Inc.’s favorite aspects of being booksellers is getting the chance to welcome and host hundreds of authors a year, from house-hold names to local, debut authors and we are so excited to begin reintroducing the Bay Area with “The Experience You Can’t Download” in our stores with traditional author talks and booksignings. In addition to meet-and-greet author events and standard author talks, we are also continuting virtual author events.

Sales equate success, and as with in-store events, booksales made from an independent bookstore benefit the author, publisher, and lead to future event bookings. Please help us keep the Bay Area the wonderful literary hub that it is by supporting your local Books Inc.
