ah-aah-AAH…CHOO!!

Chu is a little panda with a big sneeze. His mother takes him to the library, where it’s awfully dusty. His father takes him to lunch at the diner, where there’s pepper in the air. Will Chu sneeze today? And what will happen if he does?

Beloved storyteller Neil Gaiman has written his youngest picture book yet with this delightful, humorous story of how the smallest child’s actions can be very powerful. Engagingly and vibrantly illustrated by acclaimed artist Adam Rex, this is the perfect book to read aloud and share.

Absolutely adorable! Neil Gaiman is becoming a favorite name around here starting with our movie shelves and then our young readers and now even our youngest readers too. This story is cute and laugh aloud fun but my favorite part is the illustrations. Absolutely adorable! Colorful and full of texture Neil’s text met with Adam Rex’s images paints a fabulous little picture book. Very cute.
