The journey of Big Panda and Tiny Dragon continues with an inspiring story of friendship and discovery for readers of all ages.
In the eagerly anticipated follow up to the international bestseller, The Journey: Big Panda and Tiny Dragon continues the adventures of two unlikely traveling companions as they embark on a path that brings them farther from home, and closer to each other and themselves.
“Change,” said Big Panda. “even if you don’t know where it will lead, is better than stagnation.”
When Tiny Dragon feels unhappy, he confides in Big Panda, who leads his friend on a journey to heal his heart. They explore new lands, encounter extraordinary experiences, face demanding challenges, and, ultimately, find contentment. As Big Panda and Tiny Dragon trek further on their trail of acceptance, they learn that changes and challenges are a natural part of life and essential for growth.
Illustrated with the same charm and warmth as the original bestseller, Big Panda and Tiny Dragon, this all-new spiritual journey imparts both ancient wisdom, and soothes today’s troubled souls. Full of inspiration and touching humor, The Journey: Big Panda and Tiny Dragon is a heartwarming tale of adventure and acceptance.
