Review: Please Mr Panda

Mr Panda has a tray of delicious doughnuts. Very politely, he asks each of the animals whether they'd like one. Naturally, they all want one (who wouldn't?) but for some reason Mr Panda changes his mind and doesn't give any of them a single doughnut.

Until, that is …

… he asks Lemur.

And Lemur very politely says, 'Hello! May I have a doughnut please Mr Panda.'

And Mr Panda gives him the whole tray!

Simple, stylish, and oh so clever, this is a delightful story about the importance of manners. So if your little ones struggle to remember their please and thank yous, perhaps this is the book for you. Because, as my grandmother always used to say, 'I want, never gets!'
