The Giant Panda Party is an ideal party gift because it’s the story of Edinburgh Zoo’s two most famous residents — and one of them is having a birthday!

Sunshine, the giant panda, is grumpy. He thinks no one has remembered his birthday. But his best friend Sweetie has a plan. She sneaks around the zoo at night, asking all the other animals whether they can sing. The lion roars, the python hisses and the chimps say oo oo ooo! But which zoo animal has the best singing voice? Will grumpy 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.'
-- Lothian Life

'The lively blend of excellent single and double-page illustrations is constantly entertaining as is the saga as a whole. Many five to seven-plus-year-olds will be delighted by this offering!'
