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.

Neil Gaiman is the #1New York Timesbestselling author of more than twenty books, and is the recipient of numerous literary honors. Originally from England, he now lives in America.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sneezy fun This is one of my 3 year-old's favourite books. He loves to do the ah - ah - ah - no part and there is so much detail in the pictures (I love the little mice using computers in the old library card catalogue!), we always end up talking about them. Chu is adorable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful, imaginative! The writing isn't amazing - it's plain, simple, but the concept is so imaginative. When Chu sneezes there are BIG changes. The illustrations by Adam Rex are fantastic. He does a great job of personifying animals while still having them look like.. animals.

Editorial Reviews

“Gaiman’s comic timing gets a boost from strategic book design and from Rex’s hyperreal paintings, which emphasize Chu’s round, fuzzy form and apparent harmlessness. 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.”
