Steve Antony - a graduate from the prestigious MA in Children's Book Illustration at Anglia Ruskin - is the author-illustrator of The Queen's Hat and Please Mr Panda. Only debuting in 2014, Steve has had enormous success: The Queen's Hat won the Evening Standard's Oscar's First Book Prize, and was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize. Please Mr Panda was chosen as Picture Book of the Month by US retailer Barnes & Noble, who held over 650 Panda events over one weekend. Steve aims to create picture books that are slightly 'off the wall', books that children will laugh at and adults will tweet about, but most of all, books that he enjoys.
A wonderfully anarchic observation of the importance of a proper bedtime routine and the mayhem that ensues if things aren't done just right. The perfect read to enjoy with little critters who are less than enthusiastic about going to bed. It's completely charming and full of fun. * WRD books * There are some series that leap out at me from my piles of review copies and Steve Antony's wonderful Mr Panda books come in that category. We are guaranteed a highly enjoyable story along with a meaningful message relating to everyday life that children and adults will love to share. This is perfect for bedtime, of course! * Parents in Touch *
