When Pom Pom Panda wakes up in a BAD mood one morning, nothing is right. And then things go from bad to worse.

This is a simple story of a panda who gets on the wrong side of the bed and realises if he yells at everyone he’ll have no one to play with. It is a cute story, enjoyable and a quick read. The illustrations are adorable and I loved Pom Pom’s cranky face and the various trials and tribulations he endures through his bad day.

I also loved the animal friends and their designs. Henn uses the layout well to tell the story just as effectively through images and variety of colours throughout add an extra element too.

Overall a basic story but it’s cute and enjoyable which is all you can ask from a book to be fair.
