Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Hard-luck hero Panda Man, forced by hunger to abandon his training, finds himself drafted into an effort to catch the audacious masked jewel thief Chiwanda. Promised a fine meal in exchange for his services by jewelry store magnate Madame Stone, Panda Man foils Chiwanda's next attempted theft, but the diminutive thief manages to escape; the costumed adventurer pursues his adversary, using his cunning and skills. With simple, iconic art, this manga for younger readers portrays broad, sometimes crude, humor but also encourages kids to try their own hand at solving the puzzles Panda Man is confronted with. The creators demonstrate considerable sympathy for his wealthy antagonist, and Panda Man's crippling poverty is as much a source of humor as his comic pratfalls and absurd martial arts. The result is a strange combination of bathroom humor and intellectual challenges in a world where virtue brings few rewards but crime can pay. Ages 6�9. (May)
School Library Journal
Gr 1�3—The very hungry (and stinky) Panda man is back to thwart the masked Chiwanda from stealing the jewels in Big Town. This volume is scattered with potty humor and little asides from a cynical bird that will keep the pages turning. Panda Man also has several interactive games that will probably tempt children to scribble in the library copies. Computer-designed cartoon art pops off the page with plenty of "splats," "bzzts," and "smashes" dotted throughout. The story does not teach profound lessons or many new words, but it will entertain the youngest readers, especially boys. Purchase if other titles in the series are popular or you need some lighthearted humor in your juvenile graphic novels section.—Carrie Rogers-Whitehead, Kearns Library, UT
