Synopsis

Please Mr Panda by Steve Antony

With a Jon Klassen appeal, Steve Antony is the one to watch. Panda has a tray of doughnuts. Animal after animal tells him the one they want, but it's only when Lemur says 'please' politely that Panda will give any out! A witty and stylish lesson that manners will get you EVERYTHING. Even a trayload of doughnuts. 'A simple morality tale...does the job beautifully.' - The Times (Children's Book of the Week) 'Households with toddlers may find a new family catchphrase. Simple yet funny enough for multiple readings.' - Kirkus

A beautifully designed and illustrated picture book of unparalleled deliciousness WRD About Books 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

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 School Librarian

About the Author

Steve Antony is a highly talented and versatile author-illustrator. He has had a passion for storytelling from an early age, but it was the MA in Children's Book Illustration at Cambridge that really enabled him to channel this passion. Since embarking on the MA course, he has enjoyed creating picture books on a range of subjects from the Queen's hat to a war between rectangles and lizards! He aims to create picture books that are slightly 'off the wall', books that children will laugh at and adults will tweet about, but most of all, books that he enjoys.
