Las huellas de un panda

High on a mist-wrapped mountain, a mother panda cradles her newborn, pink and impossibly small.

Nick Dowson’s lyrical text, interspersed with intriguing facts, follows one of nature’s most magnificent—and endangered—species on its search for a safe habitat, while Yu Rong’s expressive, delicate brushwork brings these legendary creatures to life. Back matter includes a note about pandas and an index.
