What a fun day I had today launching The Tale of Pin Yin Panda at Edinburgh Zoo! It was SUCH a thrill to meet Tian Tian, one of the Zoo’s real life pandas, and to read her The Tale of Pin Yin Panda about her fictional (and very cheeky) Chinese cousin! Here she is in the background in her indoor enclosure – she’s gorgeous!

And here are a couple of furry pretend pandas in the Gift Shop:-

Tian Tian is such a Sweetie!

Thank you Julie Preston, Events Manager, and Rachel Goddard, Press Officer, for a fabulous day! I look forward to more Panda-monium tomorrow! And special thanks to photographer Alan Simpson who took these wonderful photos and let me use them for my blog!
