This gorgeous hardback was an instant hit in out house. Nix is obsessed with the simple tale of Panda whose friends are just too impatient to wait and see what the wonderful surprise he’s baking is – except one!
Antony is a super-talented author-illustrator who ‘gets’ the fine line that one must obviously balance to make both kids and adults laugh simultaneously as well as actually want to engage with the characters in his books. Nixon is 2.5 and this book speaks to his level beautifully. It’s the perfect cadence and length, he doesn’t lose interest at all and is so invested in Panda and his friends, we love reading it together!
