A sniffly little panda worries that his enormous sneezes will be disruptive when his mother takes him to a dusty library and his father takes him to a diner where other customers use plenty of pepper.

HARPERCOLL

A New York Times bestselling picture book from Newbery Medal–winning author Neil Gaiman and acclaimed illustrator Adam Rex!

Chu is a little panda with a big sneeze. When Chu sneezes, bad things happen. But as Chu and his parents visit the library, the diner, and the circus, will anyone hear Chu when he starts to feel a familiar tickle in his nose?

Chu's Day is a story that reflects upon how young children aren't always listened to…sometimes to calamitous effect.

I love this book about a day in the life of a Panda named Chu by Neil Gaiman. Poor Chu, has a mighty powerful sneeze.
The illustrations by Adam Rex are colorful and imaginative. It's fun to try to identify the various animals scattered throughout the book. And honestly, the awesome library with little mice sitting on little computers in the old card catalog is one of my favorite parts!
Take a look! Enjoy it with your child! Have fun sneezing..... or not sneezing!

Was pleasantly surprised this was by Neil Gaiman. My son thinks the story is entertaining, especially if you play up the sneeze parts.

Remember when that video of a sneezing baby panda swept the internet? This picture book (by superstar author Neil Gaiman) follows that idea to a delightfully absurd conclusion. A round little panda in an aviator helmet, Chu is hardly an imposing figure. But since "bad things happen" when he sneezes, Chu's every sniff is infused with suspense. Using a hyper-realistic style to depict a whimsical world, illustrator Adam Rex amps up both the humor and the eye-catching colors. Kids who fall in love with Chu won't want to miss his further exploits in Chu's First Day of School and Chu's Day at the Beach.

A quick read with great illustrations. Good for Toddlers and preschoolers. They really enjoy it if you ham it up and make a big deal of amost sneezing.

Chu is a young panda who has bad things happen when he sneezes. With this fact begins the suspenseful build towards the big event. Just how destructively massive will Chu's sneeze be? We go to a library with dusty books. Chu is able to restrain himself. We go to a diner with pepper in the air. Chu manages to hold back, but trouble begins to brew at the circus.

Cute, but the text is slight and relies too much on the illustrations. Also, Chu is a panda in image only. As far as the story goes he could just as easily be a human, a puppy, an elephant . . .

I thought the story was going to be quite good; it really seemed to be building up steam but then the ending just flopped. I agree... disappointing.

Disappointing, considering the author.
