The Giant Panda Plan (Teeny Houdini #3)
Reading Level: 2nd − 3rd Grade
Series: Teeny Houdini

When Bessie and her class take a field trip to the zoo, they get to meet someone very special: Xiao Qi Ji, a baby panda! But when Bessie learns that pandas are in danger, she has to do something to save them. Everyone in her class is working on a plan to help the pandas, yet only one group will get to present theirs at the panda showcase. With some extra-strong magic, Bessie will make sure her team's plan is the best. Will that be enough to save the pandas? Teeny Houdini, also known as Bessie Lee, is an overly excited, mischievous first grader who bounces off the walls--and off the page--with her volume, enthusiasm, and grand ideas, which are just too big for her tiny frame. Bessie's multigenerational Chinese American family is the warm center of the stories, from exasperated but loving big sister Bailey to the always encouraging and understanding Gramma. Kid-friendly and engaging, the Teeny Houdini series is a good fit for early chapter book readers.

As a bonus, kids learn the real and simple steps to a different magic trick in each book. In book three, Bessie demonstrates how to use a rope to make a Bear Knot. Zoe expertly captures Bessie's heart and humor in black-and-white illustrations that perfectly complement the laugh-out-loud funny text.
