Caldecott Honor winner Cindy Derby delivers an endearing picture book about an adorable (and ingenious!) panda bear who must find the grit within to climb--and overcome--a snowy, slippery mountain.

Look! A butterfly! Up, up, and away it flutters, flying high above a large snowy mountain.

But Panda wants to play, and that mountain is clearly in their way. To reach their new friend, Panda will just have to climb it! Unfortunately, it's very slippery...and very steep...and little Panda keeps tumbling to the bottom. Oh, Panda. Just how will they reach the peak?!

With spare text and dazzling watercolor illustrations, Panda's journey reminds us that with a bit of moxie--and a lot of perseverance--we, too, can reach the top of our mountain.
