The Journey: A Big Panda and Tiny Dragon Adventure
About this deal
As they travel to far and distant lands and encounter dangers and challenges they discover that everything they need is already within them, and that change, however scary, can lead to better things. A guiding light in the darker months, Big Panda and Tiny Dragon is the beautifully illustrated and mindful journey of two friends through the seasons, inspired by Buddhist philosophy As they leave the safe heaven of their temple sanctuary, Big Panda and Tiny Dragon commence their journey of discovery with element of modern Easter philosophy, succinct text that is accompanied by equally impressive images that are in colour and in greys which suits this story perfectly. Another theme in The Journey is the meaning and power of friendship, including coming together when the odds are against you. Further, it’s also about searching for that missing piece of our lives and while ignored by some, it is yearned by others.
However I think what works so well with this book and in my eyes sets it apart are the characters of the Panda and Dragon - they are so to take to heart that their simple observations rather than being saccharin sweet are almost innocent in their delivery. WORDS OF WISDOM: The seemingly simple, and often silly, conversations between Big Panda and Tiny Dragon reveal meaningful insights on friendship, inner wisdom, and self-acceptance. live in the moment- enjoy the small beautiful things- relax- don't give up- even the smallest steps are better than none- sometimes you need to have a break, so try again tomorrow
Friends Big Panda and Tiny Dragon journey through the seasons of the year together, day and night, in rain and in sun. Travelling through nature, they find hope and inspiration in the world around them, realising that even in the darkest of days, Spring will always return.
yeah, it definitely didn't compare to the Little Prince. this one is very much simpler, while the little prince had an actual plot & world building & reasons behind actions or dialogues, which usually regardless of age, majority of adults can enjoy it too. but this one is contained of a journey (the reasons or destinations, were not quite mentioned) with small inspiring quotes. same philosophy. a reminder.its a beautiful book with illustration with conversation between the partners though simple yet profound when you look beyond the context As they encounter dangers and challenges, they learn that everything they need is already inside them and that change, though sometimes scary, is possible and, with patience, can lead to better things.
this book is so sweet and beautiful and nothing i say in this review will ever do it justice, honestly. so here are some of my favourite quotes from it instead: PDF / EPUB File Name: The_Journey_Big_Panda_and_Tiny_Dragon_-_James_Norbury.pdf, The_Journey_Big_Panda_and_Tiny_Dragon_-_James_Norbury.epubInspired by Buddhist philosophy and spirituality, British author and artist James Norbury created the adventures of Big Panda and Tiny Dragon to share ideas that have helped him through difficult times. The book’s series of vignettes can be read cover to cover or dipped into whenever inspiration is needed. James hopes the book’s words and images will inspire others to pause, enjoy the stillness, and look at life in a positive new way. James Norbury, pisac i likovni umjetnik je na vrlo jednostavan, lijep, interesantan, kreativan i slikovit način uspio prikazati vrlo složene, tužne, teške, u biti životne situacije koje uz njega sagledavamo s osmijehom na licu. Misli su to koje su njemu pomogle tijekom najtežeg razdoblja života gdje svakako pomažu ilustracije, koje su stvarno lijepo nježne, jednostavnih, ali jako dojmljivih crteža.
