**Christmas Delivery Info**
Items direct from Paper Panda will be dispatched up to and including Weds 20th Dec, however we can no longer guarantee delivery before the big day. Deliveries will resume from 8th Jan 2018.
All custom made/guest artist orders will now be completed in the New Year.

I'm so excited for you all to read Finn Biddybum's Cake! This tale of one brave hedgehog's quest for the perfect cake is coming very soon!
The books were due to arrive with us mid December, however the production part of the process has taken a little longer than expected. This is unfortunately out of our control, and we are relying on the publishers now to get the books delivered as soon as possible. We appreciate your understanding and hope you are as excited about receiving the books as we are to be sending them!

It's Here!!


Okay so it's cold, it's slippy, it's dark already at 4pm, I have a cold, sore throat, everyone around me is keeping Kleenex in business and I look like I've been dragged through a hedge backwards... but...but...but....I am a children's book author!
My 19 advance paperback copies are here in my hands and it's AMAZING! Finn Biddybum and friends in glorious colour!!

Happy Birthday Paper Panda!

7 years ago...

"Hmmm is that it, yes, that's it!", hitting 'publish page'...
Paper Panda was born November 29th, seven long years ago. I'd made a papercut and showed a photo to my friends on Facebook and they all exploded with glee thus giving me the impression that other people may also like to explode too and so PP was born.
Did I ever think I'd be sitting here now talking to a squillion billion people about my cat, my piles and thinking about various ingenious ways to blow up the tax man? No! No way! Did I think that my third book would drop down chimneys this Christmas? Nuh-huh! Did I wonder if I applied Germoline to my newly formed finger callous that it'd go away by the Christmas partaaay? Yes, yes I did. Stoopid, 34 year old Lou, it'll NEVER go away even if you bathe it in a vat of Germoline.
So, I'm 41 now. I still work at home. I am still surrounded by many many animals, real and fictional, and I still love what I do. I hope to carry on doing it for a good many years yet.
Go buy stuff to enable me to do so 
Happy Birthday to PP and all who sail in her...erm...no, that doesn't sound right at all!

Happy Birthday FBH, Bunny, Bird, Mouse, Squiggle, Badger, Olive and Ladybug...let us eat CAKE!

Tiny Unicorn Challenge

Remember years ago we did the tiny mouse challenge when I cut a mouse the size of the number 1 on a penny? Well...how about we do it again? Unicorns are super popular at the moment so I figured we'd go with a unicorn.
So, the object of the challenge is to make a recognisable unicorn as tiny as you can in your usual medium. Anything from wood to silver, sketches to buttons, it just has to be as small as you can make it!
Upload your final piece into the comments section on this Facebook post and use the hashtag #paperpandatinyunicornchallenge and I reckon squillions of people will rush to buy them because everyone loves a tiny unicorn eh?
There will be a winner that'll win something. Mainly for fun, exposure and Christmas gift ideas for unicorn lovers 🙂
I'll keep this running until December 15th 
Have fun!
Lou xx
