With spot-on humor, a spare text, and adorable panda bear characters, this is a fun and familiar exchange between a parent and child that fans of I DON'T WANT TO BE A FROG! will easily relate to!

I want pants, says a little panda to his father.
You are a panda, answers the father . Pandas do NOT wear pants.

And so begins a hilarious battle of wills when a young panda tries to convince his father why pants make perfect sense. After all, pants are soft. Pants keep you warm. Some pants even have . . . POCKETS! But with a menacing snow leopard lurking in the background, will the longed-for pants end up having an even greater role to play?

Jacqueline Davies's humorous story, with deliciously droll illustrations from Sydney Hanson, captures the push and pull between a parent and child as they face off over the age-old dilemma of what to wear . . . with the most heartwarming of results.

A cute, simple story about a little Panda who *really* wants a pair of pants. Papa Panda tries to use logic to explain to little Panda why pandas don't need pants but as often happens in conversations between children and their parents, logic fails and little Panda remains unconvinced. That is, until he decides he what he really wants is a pair of shoes.
