I'll Wait, Mr Panda

A hilarious Mr Panda picture book about learning to be patient. Something young children can often struggle with!

Mr Panda is making a delicious surprise. What could it be? The animals must wait and see. One by one Mr Panda’s friends get bored and give up. All except one little penguin… Will his patience be rewarded?

“This deliciously droll Panda and his gigantic doughnut will have you shouting for seconds.” WRD

Lively good humour
Kirkus
Steve Antony is a huge hit with parents because his books all stress the virtues of behaving well. But the engaging illustrations and zappy prose ensure that children never suspect they are being preached to

Steve Antony is a huge hit with parents, because his books all stress the virtues of behaving well. But the engaging illustrations and zappy prose ensure that children never suspect they are being preached to.... simple yet skilful

a very simple tale told with minimal text, the beauty of this picture book -- released in paperback yesterday -- is its illustrations
The List
The picture book formula at its magic best ... Antony succeeds without gimmicks: the very young child will be gripped by his cosy drawings and the cliffhanger: will the penguin's patience be rewarded? ... Even the most impatient children will wish to return to Antony's sparse, expressive prose
The Daily Telegraoh
Wonderfully told and superbly illustrated
Parents In Touch
This deliciously droll Panda and his gigantic doughnut will have you shouting for seconds
WRD ABOUT BOOKS - Spring 2016
The use of space ... is masterly, and the various characters each bring their own personalities to the page ... Sure to be a firm favourite with any panda/penguin/doughnut fan!
School Librarian
A tribute to the virtues of patience from the award winning Steve Antony
Daily Express
This hundred-word story reflects the impatience that every child experiences and teaches the valuable lesson of waiting in a gentle and funny way. Already a classic
Inis
This gorgeous picture book perfectly encapsulates that inability to just 'wait'. ...A great story for starting discussions on manners - and perhaps children can be persuaded to test how long they are prepared to wait for a small treat!'

A very simple tale told with minimal text, the beauty of this picture book ... is in its illustrations, and in particular the world-weary look in the eyes of the pernickety panda
