KIRKUS REVIEW

Just before Christmas a juvenile was published, telling the story of the baby panda in the Chicago zoo. Now comes the true story of the capture of the panda, by a woman wholly untrained in scientific methods, inexperienced in expeditions of any sort. Her husband's untimely death made her determined to carry through his project of securing a giant panda, and overcoming all red tape and obstacles in China she set forth -- and in brief space of time, secured a baby panda, which she brought safely back to this country. The expedition background is fairly routine material; the handling of the panda and the steps by which she kept it alive and healthy make delightful and original reading.
