Two Shy Pandas

Charmingly illustrated by the wonderful Susan Varley, my latest picture book has received lots of great reviews.

Independent on Sunday chose it as one of their BOOKS OF THE YEAR for 2012!

Nicholas Tucker wrote;

‘This affectionate story is funny and touching in both text and pictures.’

School Librarian’s Anne-Marie Tarter said,

‘A reassuring read for little ones embarking on new friendships. This would be a good read aloud story with Jarman’s clear rhythm and alliteration.’

The paperback edition was published on July 2nd 2013 and launched at the EDINBURGH INTERNATIONAL BOOK FESTIVAL August 2013.

We had great fun with librarians in panda costumes, loaned by Edinburgh Zoo, acting the story as I read it to hundreds of children aged three to seven.
