Product details

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

Publishers Weekly A simple morality tale... does the job beautifully. The Times (Children's Book of the Week) Steve Antony is one to keep an eye on. picturebooksblogger Remember to say "please"and "thank you" if you want a sweet treat from this bear! Buzzfeed Households with toddlers may find a new family catchphrase...Simple yet funny enough for multiple readings Kirkus Reviews Very sophisticated Montreal Gazette A simple, funny lesson in manners Books For Keeps 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 Books For Keeps 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 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!
