    2. A winner from DemiI've enjoyed children's books I've read in the past from Wisdom Tales Press. They do a quality job - from the authors they select to represent to the books produced. THE PANDAS AND THEIR CHOPSTICKS AND OTHER ANIMAL STORIES by author/illustrator Demi is my favorite book of theirs so far.The stories remind me of Aesop's Fables that I read when I was young. These are very short stories, with a moral at the end of each story printed in italics - perfect for young children with shor [...]

    3. This is an adorable book of fables for children. The Pandas and their Chopsticks by Demi is one of those books that children will want to have read to them over and over again.

    4. The illustrations in this book are exquisite. And the stories are clever and fun to read. This will make a wonderful bedtime reading experience.

    5. Two and a half stars, rounded up.I'm a sucker for pandas, so when I came across this title I had to check it out. Unfortunately for me, the illustrations outshone the actual text and story telling by a pretty big amount.This book contains multiple short stories, and I mean short. Each little fable is only about two or three sentences. While I like the morals or lessons that each animal story tells, it felt like no effort was put into the story telling at all. It wasn't very creative and they're [...]

    6. A cheap imitation of Aesop's fables filled with some nice illustrations. While the stories in this book were nice, and all contained a moral at the end, they were each too brief. Most of the stories were only a few sentences long and could have used more development and description. For example, "A Hedgehog Thinks Twice" is about a hedgehog who believes his neighbor stole his shovel until he realizes that he had forgotten it in his own garden. The one sentence in the story describing the neighbo [...]

    12. This 28 page book is broken up into short (2 page) fables, each with a lesson that follows. The book is bright and stunning with illustrations on each page and borders that go with the stories as well. I loved the Pandas at the beginning and all of the lessons are insightful and understandable.The illustrations were simple yet interesting and the pictures of the animals were fun. Some of the tales I liked the most were: The Kite on a String,The Helpful Hummingbird, and The Owl's Hoot.I think thi [...]

    14. A collection of 1-4 page fables with an Asian flavor.Each of these short fables is accompanied by illustrations that are quintessentially Demi. All of the fables feature animals and all have a moral written at the bottom of the last page. The morals are all great advice for living well with others and being a kind and thoughtful person. It might be a bit much for kids to read all of these at once, but they would make good quick daily readings about conduct of life/morals/ethics. Definitely recom [...]

    15. Received from Netgalley I am obsessed with pandas and as soon as I laid my eyes on this I immediately requested it!This books contained 10 short animal stories teaching children life lessons. I know they are meant for children, but the stories were merely a couple of sentences. It was straight to the point, not much story to tell. The art was great, my favorite part was that each page had a beautiful border with the animals in the story.

    18. Charming collection of fables from master storyteller and artist Demi. While not quite up to Demi's greatest, luminous heights, the art here is detailed and colorful. Readers or listeners might recognize some of these stories, as they have been told before in other forms, but there is still much to be discovered and enjoyed in this volume.

    19. It is the illustrations that capture your attention in this beautiful book.Each of the very short tales is enjoyable and has a lesson at the end. I think in discussing it with your children, you could also discover more lessons in the tales.

    22. I absolutely love these little tales with their insightful morals. I am thinking it would make a great gift for just about anyone, since the tales are timeless and the wisdom is valuable.

    23. Cute. A bit wordy. Not for a story time and would be overwhelming for a young reader. I like the antique, old world style of the art.
