The surely soon-to-be million-copy bestselling sort-of inspirational parody.. A timeless parody of Charlie Mackesy's The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse.

Enter the world of me, Panda, plus my sometime-friends Cat and Teddy. You will find us living our best lives, trying (and occasionally succeeding) to be kind to each other. The cat is quite nice but can be a little bit selfish. Teddy can come across as very nice, with his squeaky voice and looking so tiny and helpless. But I must warn you, Teddy can be a vicious little backstabber, actually.

This is a book of nice illustrations and some words from which you will likely gain some sort of inspiration. Like:

'Just because you're struggling, it doesn't mean you're failing... But it might do.' 'Nothing beats kindness,' said the cat. 'Gin does', said Panda. 'If you don't stop saying inspirational things to me, I'm going to punch you up the hooter.' 'You OK, hun?' asked Panda, but he was just taking the piss. 'We're just so, so lucky to have each other as friends, and it's going to make a marvellous book.'

'I laughed my b*llocks off.' - Dave Myers from the Hairy Bikers 'Very funny... Catches the mood of the times.' - Steven Moffat, writer and producer of TV's Sherlock and Doctor Who. 'I love it. Genuinely... Really appeals to my warped sense of humour.' - Gary Andrews, author of Finding Joy 'I've fallen in love with the irascible, sweary Panda. Superbly drawn and acutely observed. I see tee-shirts ahead. I want the one that says, F*ck off, I'm reading .' - Carole Matthews, author of A Minor Indiscretion and A Cottage by the Sea 'If ever there was a time when we needed this book - it's now. I can't tell you how much I LOVED it. I'm buying it for EVERYONE! It's beyond brilliant. It's going to be a massive hit.' - Milly Johnson, author of The Teashop on the Corner 'Paul's panda makes me smile every single day. I love him.' Jenny Colgan, author of Meet Me at the Cupcake Cafe
