Synopsis

Little Panda by Renata Liwska

In this charming bookended story, a grandfather panda tells his grandson the tale of a tiger that flew. Soft, crosshatched illustrations and whimsical telling take the grandson - and the reader - to the misty mountains, where a little panda bear climbs tall trees, munches sweet bamboo, and curls up in his favorite perch to sleep. But when Mother Panda travels in search of bamboo, Little Panda is left alone...until he is visited by an unexpected and unusual intruder. What was it his mother told him he should do? This is the perfect story to reassure little ones that parents always return.

Reviews

In her authorial debut, Liwska . . . delivers a prime example of unadulterated storytelling . . . In every word, readers can hear the wise, wry voice of a narrator who knows how to hold a child's attention. The illustrations, a combination of pencil and soft digital color, evoke the simplicity of traditional Chinese art and underscore the intimacy of the book's small format. --Publishers Weekly Liwska's tale is generously imbued with a gentle humor that is echoed in her digitally colored pencil drawings. Keeping the roly-poly black-and-white principals just this side of saccharine is no mean feat, but both text and illustrations are up to the challenge as they unfold with wily deliberations. Much like this whimsical tale, the elegant illustrations hold small surprises for perceptive readers to enjoy. --Kirkus Reviews
