Jon Muth has created another wonderful story in which Stillwater once again teaches us about the joy of life. Through the beautiful watercolour and ink illustrations as well as the stories told by Stillwater himself, the reader gains insight into life’s essence as this wise panda teaches two young children the value of patience and that no one is immune to selfishness. This beautiful tale revolves around a brother and sister. Molly wants to become a dancer and Leo just wants to play good guy – bad guy.  Stillwater teaches the youngsters about patience, compassion and sharing through his stories and their play together. A wonderful addition to any library.
