July 28, 2014 - PRLog -- Eating bamboo shoots with chopsticks three feet long? Impossible, you say. Not if you are a playful panda and learn to share and work together with your friends! In her beautifully illustrated new book, award-winning author, Demi, presents:

Ten classic animal fables containing cunning kitties, helpful humming-birds, talkative turtles, and hasty hedgehogs

Magical illustrations and whimsical storytelling that bring the fables beautifully to life

Valuable moral lessons for young hearts and minds, like the importance of being humble, kind, and generous

Praise for The Pandas and Their Chopsticks

“Award-winning author-illustrator Demi (The Empty Pot) brings her considerable artistic skill to this collection of 10 animal stories. Themes of generosity, humility, and cooperation are presented through the antics of pandas, hedgehogs, hummingbirds, and turtles. Most of the tales unfold in a single illustrated spread, ending with a moral, set in italics. . . . Rich in color and pattern, with distinctive, whimsical borders that feature the animals mentioned in the stories, they will certainly draw the eye of young readers. . . . The moral associated with each tale could be used as a teaching tool for parents or caregivers who want to discuss, or encourage, these qualities.”

Publishers Weekly

“Aesop meets Confucius in The Pandas and Their Chopsticks: and Other Animal Stories, a blend of classic Chinese proverbs, Indian jatakas, and traditional fables. Demi’s spirited animal friends will help children discover, among other things, the joys of being humble, generous, and helpful. Beginning readers will appreciate the brevity of each tale, and the detailed borders will captivate when the stories are read aloud. The Pandas and Their Chopsticks is a versatile collection that would work well for independent reading and group sharing.”

ForeWord Reviews

“Each of these 10 fables (nine are about animals and one about a river flowing into the ocean) includes a moral or proverb worthy of discussion. . . . Demi’s signature motifs are used generously, often in the faint patterns filling many of the mainly pastel backgrounds. Borders around the illustrated pages are filled with gesturing, parading, and cavorting animals from the particular tales.”
