Because Mr. Wu got soooooo much screen time in December, he has graciously allowed us to pre-empt his weekly forum today. (XLW: what dat mean grasshusly? is dat ’bout bamboo?)
We are big fans of Pandas International for many reasons. First, they do stuff for pandas (and as we have said before, without pandas, there could be no panda satire!) But also, for some strange reason, they think we’re pretty funny! So of course we can’t help but jump up and down and say, “They like me! They really like me!”
They have asked us to share some of our cartoons with them, for Christmas cards and for their annual auction program. When given the challenge of coming up with a cartoon for a fairly straight/serious subject, it is fun to see where my mind takes me. Last year’s funding focus was for enrichment items to keep the pandas entertained. Of course I had to have my own point of view:
I am such a dork.
This year, they would like to help fund laboratory equipment and so I came up with this idea for a cartoon for their program.
Can you calibrate the cuppycake?
But this was not quite enough help to lend to pandas, and so I thought I’d have a special promotion. To help support the work that Pandas International does, I have decided (because, you know, I’m the decider around here) that for each and every Panda Chronicles book sold through either Amazon or my Createspace stores during the month of February 2014, I will donate $1 to Pandas International. Really!
It’s just like the panda says! Buy my book and real pandas benefit!
So, if you were thinking about adding to your collection of Panda Chronicles books, February would be a great time to do it. There are now 3 books in the series, starting with The Panda Chronicles Book 1: Your Brain on Pandas, moving on to The Panda Chronicles Book 2: Wheel…of….Pandas! and my most recent release, The Panda Chronicles Book 3: Nobody Expects the Panda Kindergarten! and soon, very soon, maybe even before the end of February (no pressure, of course) The Panda Chronicles Book 4: The Book of Wu, which contains all the cartoons to date starring Mr. Wu! It will start with his early days in the den and continue with all five of his extended play adventure stories! Huzzah!
I know I always say this, but this really is my best book yet.
So…support pandas, buy my books and be there bear!
