December 8, 2017- Hi Friends, I’m really excited to share a little piece of a book that our very own Shamayal Hayat is working on as we speak! It will be released in the spring of 2018, and the title of this children’s book is Phillip Star. Phillip Star is larger than life and I can’t wait for you to meet him! Stay tuned for more updates and new releases from Pandamonium Publishing House. We have some really exciting things in our lineup for the next 2 years not only for kids but for adults too. Remember to follow us on Facebook!
November 28, 2017- I’m very happy to announce that school visits are in full swing for this year and into 2018. It has been an absolute pleasure to visit students in various schools to read them my book Deer Diary. I’m always inspired by what they have to say, and they often give me new and exciting ideas for upcoming books; This is precisely what happened during a school visit in Hamilton on Friday! The students wanted to know if next time, I could write a book about different woodland animals, as I had left out some of their favourites! When I asked them what animals they would like to see in the future, the answer was unanimous: They picked a wolf, a fox, and an owl! That being said, I’m thrilled to say that I’ve decided to write a sequel to Deer Diary with a whole new cast of characters that will include the animals that the students suggested. Of course, this means that I will dedicate Deer Diary 2 to the students of that school! Look for Deer Diary 2 in the summer of 2019:)
October 30, 2017- I know that Halloween isn’t until tomorrow, but I thought that I’d share some fun news from Pandamonium Publishing House! Next year, just in time for Halloween, The Adventures of Milan and Friends (Trouble with Trolls) will be published. This book will be available for A LIMITED TIME in a LIMITED QUANTITY as a COLLECTOR’S EDITION to celebrate my favourite time of year! Be sure to get your copy and feel free to contact me if you’d like to go on a pre-release list.
This children’s picture book is geared towards children in the age range of 3-5+ and will be available in major bookstores as well as online through Amazon.com and Amazon.ca.
Stay tuned for sketches, later next summer, as well as sneak peeks behind the scenes of character development and illustration. I’ll also be releasing some information about each character and what the inspiration is behind it!
Thank you so much to each and every person who continues to support my work and who make it possible for me to do what I love. Without you all, there would be no point.

June 12, 2017-Hi Friends! As you’re well aware, Pandamonium Publishing House is thrilled to announce our newest author Tamara Botting, who has written the fabulous, middle-grade novel Unfrogged.
Unfrogged is slated for release on July 1st, and I know that you guys are going to love it! I’m also sure that you’d like to get to know Tamara a bit better too, so here is her official author biography.
Somewhere along the way, Tamara Botting heard the phrase, “If you can’t find the book you want to read, write it yourself.” Apparently, she couldn’t find a book about a princess who was a hot mess and a sarcastic frog, which is why you’ll soon be holding a copy of Unfrogged. When she’s not writing or reading books, Tamara is Auntie to a whack of nieces and nephews, a reporter for a community newspaper, and a vocal defender of the Oxford comma (because without it, the American flag would be red, white and blue (also known as periwinkle).
As many of you know, Pandamonium Publishing House first released Panda the Very Bad Cat as it’s flagship title. We’re so excited to announce our next project which is a middle-grade novel by author Tamara Botting! Her book is called Unfrogged, and you can expect it in stores this summer. Official release date for Unfrogged is July 1, 2017 but stay tuned for cover art of Unfrogged by Christopher Botting…yes, they are related;)
