About Anzu the Great Listener

Anzu the Great Listener book cover. Anzu a bright yellow kaiju kneels with his hand reaching out to small creatures on the ground with a bonsai tree in the background. Above him is a blue sky and a white box with the title.

Anzu the kaiju loves to tend to his bonsai.
Whenever he feels overwhelmed or unsettled, it helps him pause and reminds him to just . . . breathe.
One day, when Anzu hears crying in the distance, he's eager to help! The flower-power that makes his bonsai bloom has a way of making others smile.
But when Anzu's flowers seem to lose their power, hurting more than they help, he's not sure where to turn--until he remembers some valuable lessons he learned from his bonsai tree.
In Anzu the Great Listener, creator and Walt Disney Studios animator Benson Shum illustrates the importance of patience, empathy, and above all, taking the time to listen.

Orders placed after Monday, March 27th are not guaranteed to be personalized and may just be a signature only depending on availability.
