"Xander planned a panda party. Yes, a dandy whoop-de-do
""But Xander was the only panda. Just one panda at the zoo."
The zoo's paucity of pandas doesn t impede Xander's party planning for long. He decides to invite "all" the bears. But Koala protests. She's not a bear she's a marsupial Does that mean she can t come? Xander rethinks his decision to invite only bears, and Calling all bears evolves into Calling all creatures. The Newbery Medal author Linda Sue Park introduces animal taxonomy in a wonderfully engaging way, and the celebrated artist Matt Phelan's charming ink and watercolor paintings are the icing on the cake. A read-aloud whoop-de-do
I was born and raised in the Philadelphia area, studied film and theater in college, and held a variety of jobs that I suppose gave me character. Since 2004 I've been drawing pictures for my living which is as much fun as it sounds.
