Every kid has them, and every parent, or kid-caretaker, has had to deal with them - those meltdown-tantrum-pitching-a-fit moments! Peter Panda has them–when it’s time to leave the playground, when some other child has the book he wants, when Mama insists he eat some broccoli. When this happens: Uh-oh. Here it comes. Here comes that frown. Peter Panda melts dowwwnnn! Presented with humor and understanding, Artie Bennett’s bright and sprightly story offers a way for children to recognize their own behaviors.

About the Author

Artie Bennett is an executive copy editor by day and a writer by night. He is the author of a quartet of hilarious picture books: The Butt Book, his first “mature” work and winner of the Reuben Award; Poopendous!, his “number two” picture book; Peter Panda Melts Down!, an adorable departure from derrières and doo;  and the explosively funny Belches, Burps, and Farts—Oh My! The merriment continues in 2018 when Artie will publish a riotous joke and riddle book: The Universe’s Greatest Dinosaur Jokes and Pre-Hysteric Puns. A companion book, The Universe’s Greatest School Jokes and Rip-Roaring Riddles, publishes in 2019.

He and his wife, Leah, live deep in the bowels of Brooklyn, New York, where he spends his time moving his car to satisfy the rigorous demands of alternate-side-of-the-street parking and shaking his fist at his neighbors. The Show Me Librarian says: “Bennett’s use of rhyme is excellent; his stanzas flow and exude joviality in a manner that few writers since Dr. Seuss have truly mastered. Simply put, these books are a joy.” The Huffington Post says: “It appears there is no topic Mr. Bennett can’t make funny and educational.”
