One morning, Pom Pom Panda wakes up on the wrong side of the bed . . . and then nothing goes right. He can't find his blanky, Timmington. And to make matters worse, his baby brother, Boo Boo, is playing with his favorite toy. Harrumph! By the time he arrives at school, Pom Pom is in a terrible mood. When his friends ask if he wants to play, that terrible mood comes pouring out: LEAVE ME ALONE!”
And that's exactly what happens, much to Pom Pom's surprise.
