Description

Winner of the Amelia Frances Howard-Gibbon Illustrator Award

From the time Chin Chiang stood only as high as his grandfather's knees, he dreamed of dancing the dragon's dance. Now the first day of the Year of the Dragon has arrived, and Chin Chiang is so scared that he wants to melt into his shoes.

Chin Chiang is a most appealing small boy, whose plight will touch readers young and old.
