A colourful, informative and extremely cute book about pandas, full of photographs and colourful illustrations. Each page focuses on a different aspect of panda life, from how they find bamboo to eat to the way a baby panda learns to survive in the wild. Includes special pages on how pandas are cared for in captivity and how they can be reintroduced to their natural habitat. With large photographs, clear illustrations and simple text, this book is perfect for beginner readers who prefer real life stories to fiction. A glossary at the back explains specialist terms, and Usborne Quicklinks to specially selected websites allow readers to access additional information and activities.

Author information

James Maclaine

James Maclaine joined Usborne Publishing in 2010. Since then he’s written books about meerkats, donkeys and several critters besides, come up with hundreds of drawing, doodling and colouring ideas, and devised puzzles and things to do for a range of activity books. But an illustrated thesaurus and a picture book about manners are the titles that he’s proudest to have authored. Recently, James walked a thousand miles across France and Spain, but he decided to come back to his job in London — because what could be better than writing books for children?
