A party for a Party!

You’re all invited to XANDER’S PANDA PARTY! (Official publication date Sept. 3, 2013.) I can’t wait for folks to read it because of the WONDERFUL illustrations by Matt Phelan.

The fun begins with the book trailer, thanks to the folks at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt:

MORE FUN: Lovely reviews for the book!

*“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

*“The upbeat, mostly rhyming text provides a surprising amount of information about animal families and species without tripping up the pace. . . . Perfect for young animal lovers and a great read-aloud for storytime.”
—School Library Journal, starred review

*“Liberal use of internal rhyme. . . makes Park’s text sing as it relates how Xander tackles each new challenge.” —The Horn Book Magazine, starred review
