    Although spring time usually signifies rebirth, for Mei, it is a time of death since Nian, a fierce dragon, leaves his den and seeks food, most often children Mei is awakened before the first day of spring by a warrior who tells her that it is her destiny to face Nian and rid the village of the dragon s terrorism Using a cane left to her by the warrior each night and her own ingenuity, Mei and the villagers face down Nian three different times In tribute to Mei s accomplishments, new traditions surrounding Chinese New Year are started The brightly colored illustrations fit perfectly the story of one girl who made a difference and saved her people Back matter also gives details and an explanation of Chinese New Year I was encouraging to find a strong female protagonist in this modernized folktale.
