A thrilling Lunar New Year–inspired, full-color board book adventure with pages to peek through and gatefolds to open—part of the Abrams Trail Tale series, taking readers on unforgettable holiday-themed adventures.
Written and illustrated by Stella Hong, LunarTale follows a brother and sister on their way to Grandma’s house to celebrate Lunar New Year. Protected and guided by the 12 magical animals of the zodiac, they’ll travel through the city into a vast tea garden, a serene bamboo grove, and across an ancient stone bridge to gather special treats for their big, celebratory family dinner.
Young readers will delight in the clever die-cut surprises throughout and the dramatic quadruple gatefold at the end that reveals a special, festive surprise complete with dragon dancers and fireworks. Look for the 12 zodiac animals throughout the book: rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog, and pig.
