Found 11th Jan 2015
Hi All,

I met someone in the library yesterday who was looking for a book called "Panda and the Sparrow" but couldn't find. She told me that this book is sold in £48 on Internet. She wants this book for her grandchildren to read but was very said when couldn't find one. She can't afford to spend that much money either.

I couldn't see her sad face. So, I decided to help her in finding it.

Could any one of you can suggest where can I get one copy of it or even a digital copy which I can print and give her?

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Many thanks

Was just searching. Why is this book so expensive? Is it antique or something. Even the ones that are for sale are used. Was published 1983. Crazy price for a 32 page childs book.

As she was in the library she should have asked the Librarian! They will be able to order it for her via inter library loan from another library and then she can borrow it. Some libraries do this for free some make a small charge but it will be a LOT cheaper than buying it!
If you want to surprise her you could do this yourself. You will need to give the Librarian the title, author, publisher and isbn. You can see these on the Amazon page.

I completely agree with you. People are just making money out of parents for such small things.

No, I couldn't find one in the library. I do want to surprise her but need to find a way to get this book first. I can even make a coloured copy for her grandchildren to keep if I get hold of one.

I think you missed the point - if you couldn't find one 'in the library' ask the librarian and they should be able to order it in for you.

Link works ok for me, it's on amazon.com you should be looking for Pandy and the little bird not Panda and the Sparrow.

Got it now. Is it same book or a US version as the names are different?

Looks like they changed the name for some reason. The book has the same picture and synopsis except for the title name. It could be due to them having different publishers Hamlyn young books (Jun 1983) vs P.S.I & Associates, INC (1988).
