PreSchool-Grade 1—It's Mouse's birthday, and Mr. Panda is throwing a bash at his restaurant with many of the same animals first seen in Dinner at the Panda Palace (HarperCollins, 1995). Each guest gives Mouse a gift—described on one page in bouncy rhyme and revealed as readers turn the page and shout out the last word to complete the quatrain: "We love you so much,/We shopped all over town./You'll be a true princess/With this shiny gold...Crown!"). Her final present, from Panda, is her friend Snail "from far away," who completes the party and the story. Cushman's bright and cheery illustrations echo the lively rhymes. Children will especially enjoy the predictability of completing the verses. All in all, a fun party.—Marge Loch-Wouters, Menasha Public Library, WI
