Panda and Penguin Find a Thing Launch Party With Zehra Hicks

We're thrilled to welcome Zehra Hicks to the shop celebrating the launch of her newest picture book, Panda & Penguin Find a Thing! We sadly had to cancel an event with Zehra back in 2020 due to lockdown and we're so excited to finally welcome her back. The launch party will be on Thursday 11th April 2024, from 7-9pm.

Zehra is no stranger to picture books with several eye-catching books under her belt already. Zehra's expressive characters and eye-catching colours make her illustrations a spectacle to witness. Here's what publisher Andersen Press say about her newest book: 

"When mystery device comes between two best friends, will they learn to share, or decide they're better off without it at all . . . ?

Panda and Penguin are best friends . . . until they find the Thing. The Thing is exciting – it has a flashing screen and makes funny ringing noises – but only one of them can play with it at a time. The Thing comes between them, but is anything worth losing their friendship?

A funny and lighthearted tale that cautions against letting technology cause problems between friends, for the very youngest children."

Zehra will be launching Panda & Penguin Find a Thing on Thursday 11th April, fro 7pm. You can pre-order a signed copy from us for mail-order or collection by clicking the link here.
