About the Author

Steve Antony is a highly talented and versatile author-illustrator. He has had a passion for storytelling from an early age, but it was the MA in Children's Book Illustration at Cambridge that really enabled him to channel this passion. Since embarking on the MA course, he has enjoyed creating picture books on a range of subjects from the Queen's hat to a war between rectangles and lizards! He 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.

Reviews

With bold illustrations and spare prose that keep the mood light and playful, Antony offers a delightful primer on manners your children will ask for again and again * Barnes & Noble * For the grandchildren Please Mr Panda by Steve Antony has been the number one * Books For Keeps * Will spark discussion and deserves multiple readings. I love Mr Panda's expressions and have felt that way myself before when people aren't polite. Your best buy BEFORE Christmas especially for little ones yelling I WANT! * South Wales Evening Post (Swansea) * uses monochrome to splendid effect, not just for the quite justifiably grumpy Mr Panda, but for all the animals he meets and to whom he offers his delicious, brightly-coloured tray of doughnuts. Each of them is refused and clever young children will soon guess the reason why * The School Librarian * A simple, funny lesson in manners...The book has a Jon Klassen appeal to it, with its repeated text, restricted colour palate. minimalist backgrounds and the way that sometimes only tiny changes to the artwork - a raised eyebrow on the whale for instance - are used to convey different emotions * Books For Keeps * A beautifully designed and illustrated picture book of unparalleled deliciousness * WRD About Books * A simple, funny lesson in manners * Books For Keeps * Very sophisticated * Montreal Gazette * Households with toddlers may find a new family catchphrase...Simple yet funny enough for multiple readings * Kirkus Reviews * Remember to say "please"and "thank you" if you want a sweet treat from this bear! * Buzzfeed * Steve Antony is one to keep an eye on. * picturebooksblogger * A simple morality tale... does the job beautifully. * The Times (Children's Book of the Week) * Smart design decisions by Antony distinguish his visual storytelling. * Publishers Weekly * Households with toddlers may find a new family catchphrase. Simple yet funny enough for multiple readings. * Kirkus * The Queen's Hat highlighted Antony as a hot new talent, and this, his third book, will win him more fans. A witty look at manners. * Bookseller *
