Surprise! Surprise! by Michael Foreman
Little Panda can only afford a very small plant for his mother's birthday present. He hides it in the attic and gives the tiny plant his Moonlight, because although Little Panda is afraid of the dark, the plant needs the Moonlight more than he does. On the day of the birthday, Little Panda leads his parents up to attic, and opens the door onto a big surprise! This second picture book featuring Little Panda deals in a gentle and positive way with children's fear of the dark. The simple, warm story is accompanied by glowing watercolour illustrations, and a spectacular pull-out page at the end.
