And so, Marmalade sets out on a perilous adventure through the jungle to find out just where he belongs….

Can you add how he is feeling at different parts? One morning, deep in the forest, a beautiful baby panda was born. The panda was different to all the others, as he had dazzling orange fur.

I have updated my review to a 5 star. The last review I gave was the day it arrived and it did not grab the attention of my 2yr old grandson, perhaps he was just distracted. There is a new panda born but, even though his mom thinks he’s perfect, he soon runs away after he is shunned by the other panda bears because he doesn’t look like them. His adventure sees him meeting some interesting animals in the forest, each a little confused as to why this panda is orange. Create a story map that shows the different places that Marmalade visits during the story (and what happens in each place). Cuddle up and laugh with this heart-warming and hilarious picture book with your special someones, big and little, from master storyteller David Walliams.The charming story of a courageous little panda on a very big adventure. One morning, deep in the forest, a beautiful baby panda was born, different to all the other pandas he had dazzling orange fur."I will call you Marmalade!" His mummy whispered, she couldn't be more in love. David Walliams has revolutionised reading for children and become one of the most influential children's writers today. Since the publication of his ground-breaking first novel, The Boy in the Dress (2008), Walliams has seen unprecedented growth with global sales exceeding 40 million copies, and his books translated into 53 languages.The collective noun for a group of pandas is an ‘embarrassment’. Can you find out the collective nouns for other animals? Make a poster to show some of these. It's a lovely message for children and the pictures are wonderful. The design of the book is as you would expect beautiful. Setting aside the fact that pandas are solitary animals and that the creatures Marmalade meets would not be found anywhere near his natural home, this is a story about family love, being yourself and finding your place in the world – a message our youngest readers need to hear often as they begin to develop their own identity and be comfortable with it. And while they would have or will hear the theme in many stories, it is the ending that makes this one different. For it doesn’t come to a cosy conclusion with Marmalade snuggling in close to his Mama again – they get up to some hilarious mischief that lightens the message and leaves the reader with a smile. I stand by my previous note about the language for a younger child but don't let that put you off. Children need to learn all levels of language and they may not understand now but just hearing the words and seeing the pictures is enough for this very young age. Can you find all of the adjectives in the book. What do they describe? Can you think of synonyms for some of them?
