Painting of The Nian Monster, Part One: Illustrations by Alina Chau

The Nian Monster 1 | by Alina Chau

Alina Chau, illustrator of the picture book, THE NIAN MONSTER, explains the concept of the Nian Monster in relation to the Chinese New Year: “As we grow older, and with each year that passes, we learn new lessons, we become older and wiser. With each New Year, we have new hopes and new joy. Nian is not an evil monster. He’s part of the cycle of nature.”
