Hello panda fans. How are you?
Welcome to another blog, this one’s a little bit different than the others. It’s not an Earth, Ocean & People charity update, it’s not learning about sustainability or tips on being a eco-legend and it’s NOT us talking about why bamboo is the best thing in the world (it is though).
No, it’s about something else completely. Colin, the cheeky panda, has a new friend…
Her name is Lin, and she’s a BAD Panda.
LOOK at how unimpressed she is.
She’s so bad that she hates pretty much everything and just sits there with a scowl on her face, she’d probably hate us writing this blog post.
She’s the polar opposite to our own little black-and-white bear Colin, who’s happy pretty much all of the time.
See? Happy as Larry.
A grumpy panda
Would you like to find out why Lin is so grumpy and hates everything?
Well, we’re happy (a lot happier than Lin, anyway…) to present to you, our lovely customers and readers, an exclusive sneak preview of the brand-new book published by Faber – Bad Panda!
Written by Swapna Haddow and illustrated Sheena Dempsey, this is the ultimate bathroom book for kids! It follows Lin, a trouble-making panda who is sick and tired of being labelled cute and cuddly, like all of the other pandas.
Anyway, we won’t spoil it for you. If you want to read the first chapter of this amazing book, click the link here!
We’ve partnered with Faber on this book because well, it’s about pandas for one. But also, Faber’s products are recognised as being environmentally responsible. The paper used in their books is FSC-Certified (like our bamboo!), meaning that sacred sites and trees are protected during production, and indigenous people have their rights respected.
The trees used are able to naturally regenerate, or are replaced, meaning sustainability is present in their production.
Oh, and there are pandas in it.
Let us know what you think to Bad Panda! It’s available to buy from bookshops and online book retailers on the 1st July and is available to pre-order now!
And keep your eyes peeled on our socials for a chance to win your very own copy PLUS some Cheeky Panda goodies!
