Once upon a time there is a pet shop, where all shop assistants are required to wear as pets, at least the ears... It's a funny story about how to get along with animals, maybe. And maybe famous for the little cute pets and exaggerated face expressions on not-so-cute human characters. I found confidence in expressing emotions and controlling reading rhythms. As my first work in comic, most of the pages have been revised, some more than 3 times.

The first print of this series sold out within 3 days after entering the market, and the second print within 7 days, created the record of best selling. All five books sold more than 300,000 copies together, and was a hit in Chinese manga market. Later, it was published in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Vietnam.

Six months after the comic ended, a novel version was published, with a new short comic episode and more than 30 pieces of illustrations:

After the story finished, Bibi and I were invited to create extra episodes for special themed magazines and collections, such as a cross over with our other graphic novel, Brain Drift.
