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 can't say this is my favorite of Neil Gaiman's children's picture books, but it is still outrageously adorable. While the adult in me may have wanted to know why Chu's sneezes are so devastating or what's happened when he's sneezed in the past, the 4 year old in me giggled in delight each time Chu didn't sneeze, waiting for the inevitable turn of events when he did, and then giggled even harder at the chaos Chu's sneeze causes. No surprise that there's a happy ending even after the monster sneeze. I can't wait to read this one to my cousins' kids, who are the right age. And really, what more needs be said than that?
