Source: Barnes and NobleI picked up the book because of the cute cover and it looked like it would be an amusing read. I did enjoy the illustrations and thought they suited the book perfectly. And while I definitely found the panda's insomnia amusing, it didn't quite add up to a complete story for me. I did really appreciate the fun fold out elements throughout the book and I think most kids will get a kick out of that feature. The ending was also pretty funny. A recommend, but not an instant favorite.
