From the creator of the bestselling Mr. Panda series comes an amusing picture book about the fun you can have when you unplug.

Meet Blip. Blip loves being plugged into her computer. When a blackout occurs, Blip trips over her wire and tumbles outside.

Praise For Unplugged

Praise for Unplugged:

"[A] gorgeous piece of propaganda for going outside. . . [T]he book is so elegantly illustrated and cleverly conceived." -- New York Times Book Review


Praise for Please, Mr. Panda:

"Smart design decisions by Antony... distinguish his visual storytelling. The warm gray backdrop and parade of black and white animals (a skunk, an ostrich, an orca) make the candy-colored doughnuts look all the more tantalizing. Novel perspectives... provide freshness, too." -- Publishers Weekly

"Tiny young listeners may be so pleased -- and relieved -- to see the dazzling treats given away that they won't notice how deftly they've been given a manners lesson. Households with toddlers may find a new family catchphrase as Mr. Panda demonstrates one approach to eliciting those elusive 'magic words.' Simple yet funny enough for multiple readings." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Though this is a book with a clear message, the humor and attractive design give it a bit of an edge and keep it out of the realm of the heavy-handed, 'Let's learn a lesson' titles. A fun storytime selection and a solid option for parents or teachers looking for a creative way to emphasize the importance of saying, 'Please' and 'Thank you.'" -- School Library Journal
