High in a tree, a young panda named Chengu just can't fall asleep. Even though everyone else around him is quietly sleeping, Chendu just can't find the right spot. He scrunches, squirms, and wiggles with little success. That is until he finds that he just needed something a little less tree-like to lay on.
This is a cute little bedtime story, with a character that is expressive and adorable. There are some great foldout pages that were fun although this adult had some problems pulling them out so I imagine they aren't for little hands. Perhaps my favorite illustration though was an entire white page with Chengdu's panda eyes, wide awake, staring at the reader. Readers need not fear though, Chengdu does eventually find a comfortable spot, hopefully just in time for little ones to find theirs.
