The Only Lonely Panda is in the wild!

Today marks the publication date of Jonny Lambert's The Only Lonely Panda, published by Little Tiger Press! This uplifting story celebrates individuality and friendship as it follows lonely Panda on his hunt to find a friend. BookBairn has written a lovely review of the title, which you can read here!

Foreign co-editions of the title in French, Dutch, Romanian and Portuguese.

We also received a lovely mail this week from Sarah Balint, a librarian in Ontario, Canada! Over the past few weeks, Sarah has been running an incredible program called 'The Art of Illustration', in which 8-13 year old children focused on the art of a different children's illustrator each week. Jonny was one of the artists studied! The children were shown copies of his books from the library's collection and further images from Google, to inspire them to create an art piece of their own, emulating Jonny's style. Sarah was kind enough to get in touch and send over some of the wonderful pieces that the children created, so we thought we'd share them with you all, we think they're wonderful! 

Thank you so much to Sarah for sharing, and to all the brilliant, budding young artists for your work!

You can see more of Jonny's gorgeous work in his PP portfolio here!
