Chus Day

Nail Gaiman's latest children's story, Chu's Day, is about a little panda with a big sneeze. The book was illustrated by Adam Rex and will arrive in stores in January, 2013. Gaiman says he was inspired by a trip to China where a baby panda sat on his lap.

Gaiman says bad things happen when Chu sneezes. He says, "Extraordinary, impossible, enormous things happen."

Gaiman says the book is the shortest book he has ever written. Take a look:
