It’s August 2015 and little Bei Bei is soon to become a sensation. He and his twin are welcomed with open arms at the National Zoo in Washington, DC. Zookeepers and volunteers monitor the newborn giant pandas around the clock. His twin only lives for a few days, but Bei Bei survives, and fans from all over the world tune in to see his progress over the Internet. He’s adventurous, performing acrobatics and rolling in sweet pumpkin spice. At the ripe age of four, he makes the long voyage to China, where he’ll live out the rest of his days on native soil.
