Clear rating

In the newer tradition (?) of ME. . .JANE, Alicia Potter has rendered the story of Mrs. Harkness and the 1943 Expedition to China that brought back the first Panda to the Brookfield Zoo in Chicago.

Don't look now, Caldecott predictors, but Melissa Sweet is back in the race again in 2012 for her gentle, whimsical, multi-modal stylings found within this newer picture book. Sweet's consistency of style and approach will make her a heavily sought after artist (as if she isn't already).
