The Loo family has traveled very far to start a new life. In Bearland, none of the other bears look, talk, or act like the Loo family. For Chee-Kee Loo, everything is strange; and he feels like he'll never fit in. But one day, some bears find themselves in a jam, and Chee-Kee might be just the right panda to save the day.
In this heartfelt and lovable story, meet Chee-Kee the panda, a one-of-a-kind bear in all the best ways. Based on Sujean's family's experience immigrating from South Korea to the United States, this picture book is full of many layers of meaning, humor and heart with universal appeal and a fresh perspective.
Praise for the Birdie Series:
"The bold, stylized watercolor and collage illustrations, paired with spare, simple text, are set against ample white space and burst with bright, attractive textile patterns. A light confection for the preschool dress-up set."
—School Library Journal
"Text and art successfully merge throughout...Rim's bold, retro-styled watercolor collages and textured accents provide spunk. Kick back and relax for some fashionable fun."
