Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carol A. Flowers
Mr. Panda keeps his cool as his restaurant fills with patrons; from the first tired and hungry elephant to two weary lions, three little pigs escaping from you-know-who, until the party of ten chickens. Mr. Panda proves to be a gracious host who creates a special table for one last patron, making sure he feels as welcome as the others. Short rhyming quatrains move the story along. Detailed pictures of joyful critters invite young readers to count the groups as they slide, waddle and tumble in for dinner. Also available with an audiotape.
