Product description

"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!"

Review quote

"Phelan takes Park's jaunty story about a panda with a complicated social life and develops it still further. . . . There's food for thought throughout." --"Publishers Weekly, "starred review
