More > truths of life and love, even as he sparks off chaos all around. Part low comedy, part post-modern fable, the story proceeds through a series of allegorical encounters with a colourful cast of minor characters, presented to us by an excitable contemporary narrator. As Panda's slapstick disasters take a more tragic turn, so the text cunningly dismantles itself, and we are left pondering, with Panda and his beleaguered narrator, just what it has all meant.

More > feature a race of ‘super humans’ with extra powers of strength, sight, hearing and more. Many have a moral lesson for the greedy, dishonest or vain, and of course there are kings, princes, princesses and happy endings.

Dominant among these was a towering, life-like pillar of light stretching from near the horizon to high... More > up into space - the tree of life, the world mountain, the ladder to heaven. This message is heard in virtually every ancient society on earth, but while this 'world axis' is familiar enough to scholars, little sense could be made of the stories. The most conspicuous feature of the ancient cosmologies also remained the most elusive. From a modern scientific perspective, such traditional accounts no longer sound preposterous.
