The Lovereading4Kids comment

Panda cuts quite a comic figure in this story. He desperately wants to make friends with the other panda he spots in the forest, but isn’t sure how. He tries copying the other animals, but dancing like a flamingo, bouncing like a sifaka monkey and prancing like a peacock don’t come naturally to pandas. In the end he makes friends simply by sharing his bamboo. The message is an important one, and it’s a lovely story, full of things that will make children laugh, while the illustrations are gorgeous - bright and bold, the animals glow and shimmer against a silvery-grey background. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

The Only Lonely Panda by Jonny Lambert

Deep in the dewy forest sits an only, lonely panda bear. I wish I had a friend, Panda sighs, as playful sifakas and graceful flamingos dance around him. But who's that peeking through the bamboo? And can Panda work out how to be her friend? With stunning illustrations from Jonny Lambert (Little Why, Tiger Tiger, The Great Aaa-Ooo), The Only Lonely Panda is a funny and uplifting celebration of friendship and individuality. Perfect for little ones who are learning to make friends at a new nursery or school!
