The Lovereading4Kids comment
One of our Books of the Year 2015 - November 2015 Book of the Month There are some breathtakingly beautiful illustrations in Petr Horacek’s new picture book, and a story to bring a lump to the throat. Blue Penguin does the same things that the other penguins do but, because of his colour, they don’t regard him as a ‘real’ penguin. Excluded and alone on the ice, Blue Penguin dreams of a white whale that will come and rescue him. He sings a song to the whale and another penguin hears it, and becomes his friend. His singing wins over the other penguins too and when the whale does arrive, she finds the little penguin surrounded by friends. It’s a story to warm us all and Petr Horacek’s rich, colour-saturated, textured artwork creates Antarctic landscapes that are simply magnificent. ~ Andrea Reece
Blue Penguin by Petr Horacek
I feel just like a penguin, says Blue Penguin. But you're not like us, said the other penguins and they left him all alone. Poor Blue Penguin. Will he be able to convince the other penguins he is one of them after all?
A moving and beautifully illustrated story from Petr Horacek, an illustrator described by the Washington Post as the thinking tot's Eric Carle .
"Petr Horacek is one funny guy, as well as a natural-born teacher and a whizz with a paintbrush. Put him down as the thinking tot's Eric Carle." Washington Post
