The Giant Panda Party

Written by Gill Arbuthnott

Illustrated by Joanne Nethercott

Part of the Picture Kelpies Series

The Giant Panda Party Synopsis

Sunshine, the giant panda, is grumpy. His birthday is coming and he's sure no one will remember. But his best friend Sweetie has a plan. She sneaks around the zoo at night, asking all the other animals whether they can sing. The lion roars, the python hisses and the chimps say oo oo ooo! But which zoo animal has the best singing voice? Will grumpy Sunshine get a giant birthday surprise? Gill Arbuthnott's hilarious story of animal hijinks and Joanne Nethercott's endearing and lively illustrations combine for an entertaining romp set in Edinburgh Zoo! From the team who brought you Lost at the Zoo.

The Giant Panda Party Press Reviews

'In this fun story...Sweetie organises a birthday surprise for Sunshine... It's a lovely excuse to describe the characteristics of these animals and in particular the sounds they make.' -- Lothian Life 'The lively blend of excellent single and double-page illustrations is constantly entertaining as is the saga as a whole. Many five to seven-plus-year-olds will be delighted by this offering!' -- The School Librarian
