Did you know giant pandas are endangered?  People created preserves in China to help keep pandas safe.  But in May of 2008 a terrible earthquake struck the Wolong Panda Reserve in Northern China and a giant panda named XiXi escaped.  Author Phyllis Perry used the real story of XiXiís problems to make up her own story about how a panda might be frightened, tired and hungry when an earthquake struck.  How would a panda find food?  Where would a panda find shelter?  Would the Reserve workers find the panda and bring it back to safety?  Read Pandasí Earthquake Escape to find out.  (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2011-2012)
