First he taught us that good manners go a long way, and now Mr. Panda shows that good things come to those who wait!

Mr. Panda from Steve Antony’s bestselling, funny manners book, Please, Mr. Panda, is back!

This time, Mr. Panda’s black-and-white animal friends are curious what he’s making, but only one has the patience to stick around. An alpaca, an aardvark, rabbits, and a bird all wind up missing out. It’s the penguin who declares, "I'll wait, Mr. Panda." The penguin is rewarded with a big SURPRISE: a giant doughnut!

I'll Wait, Mr. Panda is a graphic, kid-friendly way of teaching the value of patience and the importance of saying "thank you."

Raves & reviews:

Praise for Please, Mr. Panda

"Smart design decisions by Antony . . . distinguish his visual storytelling. The warm gray backdrop and parade of black and white animals (a skunk, an ostrich, an orca) make the candy-colored doughnuts look all the more tantalizing." —Publishers Weekly

"Households with toddlers may find a new family catchphrase as Mr. Panda demonstrates one approach to eliciting those elusive ‘magic words.’ Simple yet funny enough for multiple readings." —Kirkus Reviews

"A fun storytime selection and a solid option for parents or teachers looking for a creative way to emphasize the importance of saying, ‘Please’ and ‘Thank you.’" —School Library Journal
