Red Panda is selling toffee apples. They are very sticky. But will there be enough for all his friends? This is a story about sharing that young children will identify with. It has strong themes of friendship and sharing.
I opened the book and was completely taken in by the end pages. Children love to find the end pages hidden in the story and they can be found as a border on Red Panda’s tablecloth. This is the perfect book to teach the significance of the end pages. The illustrations are beautiful.
This is a companion title to Hedgehog’s Magic Tricks (2012) which includes the same forest friends and Bushbaby’s Hiding Place. (to be published in 2014).
