Panda Man vs. Chiwanda

Gr 1—3—The very hungry (and stinky) Panda man is back to thwart the masked Chiwanda from stealing the jewels in Big Town. This volume is scattered with potty humor and little asides from a cynical bird that will keep the pages turning. Panda Man also has several interactive games that will probably tempt children to scribble in the library copies. Computer-designed cartoon art pops off the page with plenty of "splats," "bzzts," and "smashes" dotted throughout. The story does not teach profound lessons or many new words, but it will entertain the youngest readers, especially boys. Purchase if other titles in the series are popular or you need some lighthearted humor in your juvenile graphic novels section.—Carrie Rogers-Whitehead, Kearns Library, UT
