Households with toddlers may find a new family catchphrase. Simple yet funny enough for multiple readings.
Steve Antony is one to keep an eye on.
A simple, funny lesson in manners
For the grandchildren Please Mr Panda by Steve Antony has been the number one
uses monochrome to splendid effect, not just for the quite justifiably grumpy Mr Panda, but for all the animals he meets and to whom he offers his delicious, brightly-coloured tray of doughnuts. Each of them is refused and clever young children will soon guess the reason why
The Queen's Hat highlighted Antony as a hot new talent, and this, his third book, will win him more fans. A witty look at manners.
A simple morality tale... does the job beautifully.
With bold illustrations and spare prose that keep the mood light and playful, Antony offers a delightful primer on manners your children will ask for again and again
Will spark discussion and deserves multiple readings. I love Mr Panda's expressions and have felt that way myself before when people aren't polite. Your best buy BEFORE Christmas especially for little ones yelling I WANT!
A simple, funny lesson in manners...The book has a Jon Klassen appeal to it, with its repeated text, restricted colour palate. minimalist backgrounds and the way that sometimes only tiny changes to the artwork - a raised eyebrow on the whale for instance - are used to convey different emotions
Remember to say "please"and "thank you" if you want a sweet treat from this bear!
Households with toddlers may find a new family catchphrase...Simple yet funny enough for multiple readings
A beautifully designed and illustrated picture book of unparalleled deliciousness
Smart design decisions by Antony distinguish his visual storytelling.
