    About this book

This is the most well-known legend in the Eastern world about how the Animal Zodiac started. It is the first book of our Stories of Animal Signs series. This book begins with the legend of how cats and mice became mortal enemies. We also learn how thinking outside of the box secured the victory for Mouse. This story is similar to the Tortoise and the Hare which teaches us: slow and steady wins the race. In the case of Mouse, creative thinking gave him the upper hand against the bigger and faster animals to become the sign of the first Chinese year.
