"A panda protects a baby who has been separated from his mother, and several years later that same child rescues the panda’s baby, who has been stolen by a band of men who want to present it to Emperor Alexander. Morris’ powerful reminder to respect the wild is brought to life by Fisher’s gorgeous artwork, which makes the beauty of the natural world leap off the page. Simply stunning."

"This large-format hardback would make the ideal gift book for Christmas or a glittering gem to read to groups of children at the end of a long day at school. Inside the gold foil-adorned cover there’s sumptuous artwork with full-colour double-page spreads. With a lyrical verse story, The Panda’s Child is a joy to read to younger children and one that will inspire children to consider and discuss how people and animals can live together."

School Reading List

"A lost baby is nurtured by a panda; nine years later, the boy saves the panda’s baby in turn, helped by the fierce, indomitable spirit of the forest. This handsome, oversized fable for 5+ readers (and listeners) is full of Fisher’s leafy, lush, involving landscapes, and Morris’s characteristic sense of the vital connection between human and animal worlds."

"This is an astonishingly beautiful collaboration between writer Jackie Morris and illustrator Cathy Fisher. .. Together the words and images depict a vital connection between people and wild nature."

"This is a book to be read and relished slowly.. The shape of the story intersperses gorgeous illustrations with minimal text with two pages of poetic prose. I like this rhythm which I noticed because I read it aloud to my eight-year-old granddaughter and we agreed that it contributes to the restful atmosphere and builds slow suspense. Every illustrated page then allows the artist space for big emotions and natural features... I strongly recommend this outstanding book by Otter Barry."

"The Panda's Child is an absolute must read... I feel that to be able to truly appreciate the themes of this story and the beauty of the images, I would want to share this text with Key Stage 2 pupils... This text would also lend itself to discussions about morals and rights and wrongs. This will be a much-loved book for years to come and deserves to win a significant number of awards."

"The Panda’s Child is a simple, evocative, beautiful story that will both enthral and excite the reader as they find themselves drawn into its wonder...

Jackie Morris’ text is big, bold, simple, and yet layered with meaning. It allows Cathy Fisher’s delicate illustrations to tell the story yet gives younger readers some words to follow too, an aid to their understanding of the development of the tale.. Stunning."
