Bad things happen when the adorable baby panda, Chu, sneezes. His ever cautious parents are always asking him, "Are you going to sneeze, dear?" Thankfully neither the "old-book-dust" at the library nor the pepper in the restaurant trigger Chu's nasal reflex. But of course, the one time his vigilant parents let down their guard...you better hold onto your hats.
Gaiman's story is cute yet unremarkable. However, when you pair it with Adam Rex's fabulous illustrations, you have a picture book for all to enjoy.
For more sneezing, check out Zoo Ah-Choooo by Peter Mandel or my personal favorite, Robert the Rose Horse by Joan Heilbroner.
