Praise for Chu''s Day:
"Kids will find the idea of a monstrous sneeze funny, and it may prompt some attempts of their own. Rex''s richly detailed illustrations are brimming with fantastic touches. Share this one at toddler story time for lots of giggles, or one-on-one for spotting details in the art." - ALA Booklist
"Gaiman''s comic timing gets a boost from strategic book design and from Rex''s hyperreal paintings. Gaiman and Rex deliver a classic one-two-three punch, making hay from the notion that a cuddly baby panda is not to be trusted." - Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"A sweet, playful tale. Children will delight in seeing such a tiny creature wreak havoc." - School Library Journal
