About the Author:

Miriam Schlein is the acclaimed author of numerous books for children, including the classic stories of motherly love The Way Mothers Are and Just like Me.



Kam Mak grew up in New York City's Chinatown. He earned his bachelor of fine arts degree from the School of Visual Arts, and since then he has illustrated book jackets for numerous publishers and taught painting at the Fashion Institute of Technology.

He has also illustrated The Moon of the Monarch Butterflies by Jean Craighead George, The Year of the Panda by Miriam Schlein, and The Dragon Prince by Laurence Yep. Kam Mak lives in Brooklyn, New York, with his wife, son, and daughter.

From School Library Journal:

Lu Yi wonders why a daxiong mao (giant panda) has come down from the mist-shrouded mountains. Then he and his father discover a dead panda who has left behind a baby. Lu Yi rescues the orphan, and with the help of his family, cares for it. One day, a messenger arrives in their remote village in China with the story of the pandas' plight. The bamboo that the pandas feed on has died, as it does every 60 years, and, as it takes two to three years for the new shoots to grow sufficiently, there is a famine. The pandas have journeyed to the farms seeking food. When the messenger hears of the orphaned panda, he makes arrangments for Lu Yi and his charge to go to the Panda Rescue Center. There Lu Yi comes to understand the extent of the effort required to preserve the endangered daxiong mao and their habitat. This is a well-crafted, absorbing story. That it will also inform readers of the plight of the giant panda and of the efforts to insure its survival is an added bonus. The full-page black-and-white drawings add to the appeal. --Susan Middleton, LaJolla Country Day School, CA
