Littlebug and Turkeybird Team Up:
Turkeybird: “You go first bug. I. Can’t. Stop. Laughing. hahaha!”
Littlebug: “Turkey, I can’t go! I’m still dancing!”
Turkeybird: “Okay, I’ll. haha Try. haha. To. haha Go. haha”
“You have to read this book. haha It’s so funny! haha You should have seen my dad. He spit his drink out the first time he read it it’s so funny! haha”
Littlebug: “Don’t forget, we also did spinning with dad too! (spinning=dancing)”
Turkeybird: “I was trying to forget that, but the floor dancing was pretty fun!”
Littlebug and Turkeybird: “If you want to see your mom and dad do some crazy things and maybe even spit their food out everywhere you have to tell them to get you this book! It’s so funny! We love it!”

Mom’s Two Cents: “Take one sleepy zoo keeper, one crazy panda and a zoo full of wild animals and what do you get? Pandamonium! Yes, from doing the cha-cha to break dancing there is nothing that can keep these party animals from living it up all night long. Well, almost nothing…leave it to a skunk to ruin the party.

“This is quite truly the funniest picture book ever. To begin with I was really delighted with the illustrations which continue to be just as wonderful inside as they are on the outside cover. With animals from pandas, to crocodiles, to monkeys and of course the skunk kiddos really enjoy naming off all of their favorites. They dance and do silly things, all the things that little kids think are absolutely hilarious. And then, the skunk happens. Well, I won’t give away the ending, but let me just say I was completely surprised and hysterically so. I’ve never been caught quite so off guard (in a good way) by a book ever, not to mention by a picture book!

Panadamonium is a book for children and parents alike. All will be partying, dancing and giggling until the very last page when you will suddenly be in hysterics because of the humor. Spend a little time at the zoo getting to know the many animals that live there and discover just how much fun they truly can be!”

The1stdaughter Recommends: Ages 2 and up. Kiddos will love the humor and activity of this adorable picture book, but I dare say parents may love it even more!

    Adorable artwork. That’s what first struck me on this post. I love the look of the panda…and his expression thanks to the skunk. Glad Littlebug and Turkeybird (and Mom) had a good time with it…thanks for sharing!

  2. You convinced me that I need to get hold of that book. Thanks!
