"Michael," said Karl. "There's a really big bear in the backyard." This is how three children meet Stillwater, a giant panda who moves into the neighborhood and tells amazing tales.

I read this book to my 4 month old every evening at bedtime. It's his favorite... the soothing rhythm of the stories soothes him and the illustrations are beautiful! I love this book and am purchasing the others in the Stillwater series.

I read this book to my son at the book store. I loved it - the way the character tells his uncle's stories is great - three tales within a larger story. Very unique and engaging. My son - excellent reader at 5, opted for a hard cover pokemon book instead. What do kids know. He was very engaged while I read it to him though. I had to explain one of the lessons to him, but an older child might get them on his own. I am buying a copy for our home. If you love books - at any age - you need to have this as part of your library.
