Please Mr Panda

Publisher: Hodder Children's Books

Mr Panda has a tray of delicious-looking doughnuts. He wants to share them, so he politely asks all the animals he meets if they would like one. A penguin, a skunk and a whale all say 'yes', but Mr Panda changes his mind each time. It is only when Lemur remembers to say the magic word that Mr Panda is happy to share his tasty treats.

This is a witty and stylishly-presented picture book, in which the black and white animal characters create a vivid contrast with the brightly-coloured doughnuts. Children will love looking through the pages time and time again - and will also pick up on the story's simple but all-important message: good manners will get you anything, including doughnuts!
