Peter Panda Melts Down!: Artie Bennett

Meet Peter Panda! He's usually good, but sometimes crabby. Aren't we all? I think totz will see themselves reflected in this panda's frustrations and relate to his occasional meltdowns. Panda grabs another's toy, won't eat his veggies, and won't go to bed. What are panda parents to do? Melt down too! This is a realistic occurrence and I'm glad to see it portrayed in this book. In the end, Peter Panda is sorry and all is well.

I adore this character and this book cover by Jon Nez!

An 8.5 x 8.5 inch picture book that could easily transform into board book format at some future time.

As Peter Panda's illustrator I say 'Thanks a million!'
