A Story That Grows

(4) PS A panda mother reads a bedtime story "that grows" like the bamboo bed her cub is tucked into; a walrus dad sits atop ice reading a story "that's made to melt" to his child; and so on. The story types are occasionally stretches, but playful language and art details (such as the goldfish child playing with a toy octopus on a seashell rug) enliven this French import.
