Children's book author Artie Bennett will be signing his new book, "Peter Panda Melts Down!" in Manhasset on Sunday.

Hailed as the "Dr. Seuss of your caboose," Bennett will also be reading his two other picture books"Poopendous!" and "The Butt Book."

"Peter Panda Melts Down!" follows Peter, a 3-year-old who throws tantrums -- in the car, in the library and in the supermarket -- when he doesn't quite get his way. Peter Panda's typical toddler reactions to everyday things from dinnertime meltdowns to bedtime drama will certainly resonate with parents. Children ages 2-5 will love the playful illustrations by John Nez.
