Guess who's coming to dinner!
Join one hungry elephant, two carsick lions, three pigs running from a wolf, and dozens of other playful yet famished animals as they swing, bound, and bounce into the Panda Palace for a hearty meal.
Mr. Panda, owner of the Panda Palace restaurant, manages to find seating for all of his animal patrons on a very busy night.
"As Mr. Panda graciously greets guests arriving at his restaurant, he also invites readers to enjoy a rollicking counting rhyme. A peanut-selling elephant, two carsick lions, and on through assorted critters until ten chickens bring the seating to capacity. Funny quatrains are reinforced with hilarious illustrations". — School Library Journal. Featured on PBS's Storytime. Full color.
