Xander's Panda Party


Author: Park, Linda Sue / Phelan, Matt (ILT)
ISBN: 9780547558653 Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

Xander planned a panda party. Yes, a dandy whoop-de-do!

But Xander was the only panda. Just one panda at the zoo.

The zooÕs paucity of pandas doesnÕt impede XanderÕs party planning for long. He decides to invite all the bears. But Koala protests. SheÕs not a bearÑshe's a marsupial! Does that mean she canÕt come? Xander rethinks his decision to invite only bears, and ÒCalling all bearsÓ evolves into ÒCalling all creatures.Ó The Newbery Medal author Linda Sue Park introduces animal taxonomy in a wonderfully engaging way, and the celebrated artist Matt PhelanÕs charming ink and watercolor paintings are the icing on the cake. A read-aloud whoop-de-do!
