The Lovereading4Kids comment

When Chu sneezes, big things happen, as fans of Neil Gaiman and Alex Rex’s charming picture books will know. A day out at the beach promises all sorts of fun, including ice cream served by a dextrous octopus, but when the sunshine tickles Chu’s nose the sneeze he sneezes is so massive it breaks the sea into pieces! Chu will have to sneeze again to put it right. Chu is a perfect picture book star, always at the centre of everyone’s attention, and happily causing chaos without ever meaning to, and children will love the silliness of his adventures. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Chu's Day at the Beach by Neil Gaiman

Chu, the little panda with the BIG sneeze, is BACK - and this time he's going to the seaside! Like all pandas, Chu LOVES the seaside. There are seagulls and rock pools and ice cream. Chu will have a lovely day, and with all that sea, sand and sun, what could possibly go wrong?

Reviews

Praise for Chu's Day:

'This charming tale from fantasy-fiction superstar Gaiman sees Chu attempting to stifle one of his sneezes until he can contain it no longer. Comedy chaos ensues' The Financial Times

'Loved by us all, I hope Chu has another adventure soon' Guardian

About the Author

Neil Gaiman

Bestselling author Neil Gaiman has long been one of the top writers in modern comics, as well as writing books for readers of all ages. He is listed in the Dictionary of Literary Biography as one of the top ten living post-modern writers, and is a prolific creator of works of prose, poetry, film, journalism, comics, song lyrics, and drama.

Gaiman was the creator/writer of monthly cult DC Comics horror-weird series, Sandman, which won nine Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards. Norman Mailer said of Sandman: "Along with all else, Sandman is a comic strip for intellectuals, and I say it's about time."

A self-confessed “feral kid who was raised in libraries”, Author of the Month Neil Gaiman, spent much of his childhood devouring the books of J.R.R. Tolkein, Edgar Allan Poe, C.S. Lewis, Michael Morcock and a host of others. Once the biographer of Douglas Adams and Duran Duran, he has achieved cult status in the world of Science Fiction with his award winning, unpatronising writing for young people.

Born and raised in England, Neil Gaiman now lives near Minneapolis, Minnesota. He has somehow reached his forties and still tends to need a haircut.

See Neil speaking about his new novel, Fortunately, the Milk, a time-travelling adventure for young readers featuring aliens, dinosaurs, volcano gods and a pint of milk that saves the universe!
