"The Year of the Ox brings the richness of Chinese heritage to children of all ages."--KTVU, FOX News, Channel 2, San Francisco, CA

The feisty calf Olivia befriends the girl Mei, but pulling her weight on the farm isn't easy. When a flood threatens her "sister" and village, can Olivia save the day?

This is the fourth book in the popular Tales from the Chinese Zodiac series, following The Year of the Dog, Pig, and Rat. 2009 was the Year of the Ox.

"Like the typical ox, Olivia is hard-working, dependable, and a little stubborn. It's a coming-of-age tale of an ox who discovers her best qualities. The illustrations are charming" - Supah Cute

"Miah Alcorn's illustrations are bright and colorful. Each character's personality reflects on each page. Oliver Chin uses Olivia's story to illustrate some of the characteristics of the ox from the Chinese zodiac. The story also teaches children (hard working and dependable) that nobody's perfect and that nobody can be good at everything. It just takes time to discover what one's talents are." - Northwest Asian Weekly

"Oliver Chin's spirited storytelling and Mia Alcorn's spot on characterization and subtle palette combine to bring Olivia and Mei in The Year of the Ox into rambunctious life." - Belle Yang, author
