Hello, I'M PANDA

The cover of the book Hello, I’M PANDA

In the book Hello, I’M PANDA, written by Tan Kai, a Chinese panda studies specialist, a panda tells stories of her clan. The book is for adolescents at home and abroad.

Nini is the storyteller in Hello, I'm Panda. "Dear friends, nice to meet you. I'm Panda Nini. My face is round just like a fat doll that wears sunglasses. My appearance is a little clumsy and even looks like a naughty simpleton. My butt waggles when I walk. It's so funny! Why are we all black and white?"

Tan believed that, "the first-person narration connects the readers with pandas instantly."


The book about a panda is written in plain Chinese, and has been translated into English. It includes over 200 pictures, either old pictures of high historic value or rare beautiful photographs provided by the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding. It was showcased at the Frankfurt Book Fair in October. According to the book’s editor, the publication attracted huge interest from international publishers during this year’s book fair.
