Warm, fuzzy text joins warm, fuzzy illustrations to create a cozy bedtime story for those who have trouble falling asleep - or not. Readers and listeners will be charmed by adorable panda bear Chengdu’s solution to his insomnia. — Gail King


High in his bamboo tree, a young panda named Chengdu lies awake while everyone around him is sleeping. No matter what he tries, he cannot fall asleep. He turns and he tosses. He scrunches and he rolls. He even hangs upside down. Finally he climbs up and up and up, until he finds the perfect spot atop his brother. Panda pile.
