A Cat called Panda by Melanie Arora and Charlie Brandon-King (Button Books)

A Cat Called Panda

Written by Melanie Arora

Illustrated by Charlie Brandon-King

Published by Button Books

This is something new and refreshingly different! An illustrated story-poem-book about a cat called Panda who loves Bamboo, and a girl called Amanda who loves Cats too!

Our horrid attempts to rhyme will henceforth cease as we tell you all about this lyrical and singsong little book with perfect dreamy rhymes and really unique illustrations. Cat (Panda) tries to point out to an inquisitive little girl the reason for his name. As we all know, cats are quite aloof (love the description "haughty") and cat really can't understand why Amanda doesn't see the logic behind a black and white feline being named after another well known Bamboo-loving black and white animal.

Children of all ages will love reading the nonsense rhymes, and will love discovering all the tiny little details in the fab illustrations. Melanie and Charlie's book is as exquisite and classy as Panda himself!

Charlotte's best bit: Spotting all the black and white animals that crop up throughout the story (see if you can spot the killer whale!)

Daddy's Favourite bit: A really unique and refreshing poem book, absolutely perfect for tucking into your bag to keep little ones amused while out and about
