Panda Trek 2: The Next Generation

As I was looking for ‘toons for this week’s round up, I realized I had not done any of the twins until January of 2017. Partly, I’ve become a little superstitious, and not wanting to do ‘toons about baby pandas until I’m reasonably sure they are healthy, but mostly, I think because I was…um distracted. You know what I’m talking about.

Anyway, onward with the cute baby pandas.

Tell Me a Story

We are starting a NEW Story this week! Huzzah! It is another of my fractured retellings of a very old and familiar story, with my own little pandy twist to it! Bwahahahahaha!

But first, I must report about PandAlanta fest, which took place last weekend at the Atlanta Zoo!  A fabulous time was had by all, including the stars of the weekend, Six and Sebben, those delightful little pandas residing at the zoo with their parents. In addition to the warm up act (me!!!) we had a fabulous presentation from the folks at PDX Wildlife, who study – of all things – PANDAS!!!! What? You were expecting naked mole rats? Any way, they shared lots of pictures and told us about their research. Expect to see more about them here as not only are they doing important work for panda conservation, they were really nice people too!

But now! The Panda Chronicles presents, the latest in our long line of literary abominations, KittySue and the Three Pandas!!!!

story

This story seems a little, but not entirely, familiar!

Huzzah!

Book 7: Don’t Call Mee Boo Boo, has been getting a resounding welcome out there in the pandasphere and to thank you, we are offering a sale on all the earlier books in the Panda Chronicle Series, in case your library is not all stocked up on the earlier titles! You can find links to all the books here. 

But don’t delay! These prices will go back up to list price on Saturday, April 1st, so don’t delay! No Foolin’!!!

And in case you were wondering what I was up to last weekend at panda fest….

Brave New Pandas

Okay. Laugh if you want, but there really is a panda convention. And no, we don’t ALL dress up like pandas. But if there is one thing panda fans love, it’s going to visit actual pandas, and talking  about pandas. Do we know how to have a good time or what? Of course, if you are here reading these ‘toons, chances are you are one of those people who stalk pandas at every given opportunity! Be brave and admit it. It’s okay, you’re among friends here.

And of course, there will be cuppycakes, right, Leslie?

brave

Oh, brave new world, with such pandas in it!

Update on the next collection of the Panda Chronicles: I finally successfully uploaded the files (yay!) …always the most stressful part. Now I’m waiting for them to approve my files so I can order a hard copy proof! Stay tuned for a cover reveal next week! Huzzah!

Panda on!

Summit Talks

The talks between world (cough cough) leaders are not the only summit talks that are now happening around the world. The question is one that has puzzled philosophers for centuries: What do pandas talk about, when they talk about ‘boo? And more importantly, are panda moms the true power behind the curtain?

Give me a cuppycake and a bamboo lever and I will move the world!

The Little Gift That Keeps on Giving

Oh me, oh my! What trouble has Pinky caused now? I think I hear the phone lines sizzling even now, as Lun Lun discovers just what Pinky’s little gift to the twins actually was! But look how nicely she is playing Go Fish with her little brother. She is even…um…well, not exactly letting him win so much, as by not cheating so effectively that he doesn’t lose by much. Pinky is a font of generosity today!

Let’s see what is happening down in PandAlanta!
