The Year of the Rat

In this sequel to Grace Lin's beautiful children's novel The Year of the Dog, big changes are coming Pacy Lin's way in the new Year of the Rat. The Year of the Dog was the best year ever: she and her best friend Melody became the closest of friends and much, much more. But this year, Pacy must deal with a lot more, including Melody moving away! She also has to find her true talents, new friends, and inner courage that she didn't think she had. Is change really as bad as Pacy thinks it is? Grace Lin's humorous and fantastic second novel comes to life with gorgeous hand-drawn illustrations. Girls and boys in grades 3-6 will adore this talented writer and illustrator's fun and spunky book. After reading The Year of the Rat, readers will have a warm, happy feeling that only an exceptionally good book about family and friends can give you.
