oh god this book is just wonderful. not only is it freaking adorable, but it is one of those children’s books that teaches a Very Important Lesson about how being the one polite creature in a world full of rude animals gets you delicious rewards.
and how, at least between this book’s covers, those rude animals will get nothing except sorrow and bewilderment.
an adorable panda has a box full of donuts to give away, but they’re not for just any old animal—this panda has a healthy respect for good manners, and animals who are rude and grabby don’t stand a chance. and in his quest to find someone to give the donuts to, he will leave behind a trail of disappointment, and a particularly rude ostrich.
until he is able to find one creature, a polite and enthusiastic lemur, whose good breeding is evident in the way he says “please.”
it’s the cutest thing ever, and i always appreciate a good lesson.
don’t be an ostrich, people. be a lemur. always be a lemur.
