Twelve Little Guardians in New Year: The Year of the Ox

Author Chih-Hao Yen
Illustrator Jhih-Min Huang

The twelve little Zodiac guardians are ordered by the Jade Emperor. On every New Year's Eve, they drive the golden ship and give out New Year’s Blessing to people. This year, it’s little ox’s turn. How can he give full play to his talents and subdue the Nian monster? Different from traditional Chinese folktales, this is a subversion that combines fantasy elements and comic narratives about this holiday, leading readers to understand the traditional Chinese culture and customs and the personality and characteristics of each zodiac.
