Big Panda and Tiny Dragon [9780241529324]

(9 reviews) Write a Review

The charming, beautifully illustrated tale of two best friends, Big Panda and Tiny Dragon.

It is spring by the time they emerge - they'd gotten lost in the swirling mists and had fallen asleep under glittering stars. While they sit watching a warm sun rise, it dawns on them both that a new day means a new beginning, and another magnificent adventure awaits . . .

Two beloved friends, Big Panda and Tiny Dragon journey through the seasons of the year together. On their way into the wild they often find themselves entirely lost, and while not knowing where they are, they discover many beautiful sights they'd never have found if they'd got it right. Together they explore the thoughts and emotions, hardships and happiness that connect us all. In nature they learn how to live in the moment, how to be at peace with uncertainty, and how to find the strength to overcome life's obstacles, together.

Please note that a new edition of this book has a different cover (it doesn't have a thick border on the left). As we have stock of both editions we can't guarantee which one you will receive, though you can view both covers on this page. Although the covers are different, the publisher has assured us that the content in both editions is the same.

Writer and artist James Norbury began illustrating the adventures of Big Panda and Tiny Dragon, inspired by Buddhist philosophy and spirituality, to share the ideas that have helped him through his most difficult times, and he hopes they can help you too.


James Norbury is an artist, author and illustrator with a love of nature and animals.

James was born in the Forest of Dean and he's spent most of his life writing and drawing. He studied Zoology at university and after graduating he moved to Ireland. From there he travelled around the UK living in Newcastle, Swansea and Cheltenham, some of the time living on a narrowboat.

James now lives back in Swansea with his wife and their seven cats. He volunteers with the Samaritans and his local Cats Protection.

 "We have chosen Big Panda and Tiny Dragon as our BOTM because we know it can bring joy to so many people. James Norbury has produced a book full of beautiful illustrations and heartwarming messages.

This is the perfect book to refer to over and over again throughout the year, no matter the weather or how you are feeling, there is something for everyone to enjoy. If you are in need of a lift, the lovable title characters are here for you.
With a style similar to A.A. Milne's 'Winnie-the-Pooh' and Charlie Mackesy's 'The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse' this is sure to be loved by millions and would make a perfect gift."
