The Giant Panda Party
Sunshine, the grumpy panda, is sure everyone has forgotten his birthday. But his best friend Sweetie hasn't!
Sweetie sneaks around the zoo, asking the other animals whether they can sing. The lion roars, the python hisses and the chimps say oo oo ooo! Will Sunshine get a giant birthday surprise?
'The Giant Panda Party is based on the popular Edinburgh Zoo pair, Sunshine and Sweetie. In this fun story from Gill Arbuthnott and Joanne Nethercott, Sweetie organises a birthday surprise for Sunshine... It's a lovely excuse to describe the characteristics of these animals and in particular the sounds they make.'
