Ever thought you had problems? Try being a Penguin! There’s too much snow, it’s too cold, the sea has too many dangerous creatures in it, everyone looks the same. In fact, there seems to be no end to the problems facing a young penguin! But all is not as completely hopeless it seems. A wise walrus offers good advice and Penguin begins to feel that the world is not quite as hopeless as he had thought. Lane Smith’s stylish illustrations brilliantly capture universal emotions of loneliness, isolation and the widespread feeling of being ‘different’. ~ Julia Eccleshare

Synopsis

Penguin Problems by Jory John

In this hilarious first collaboration from Jory John and Lane Smith, a penguin levels with human readers about what penguin life is really like ...and it isn't all fun and games! Have you ever considered running away to Antarctica? Of course you have! Because it's a land free of worries and responsibilities! Think again, my friend. This penguin has come to tell you that his life down there is no picnic. For starters, it is FREEZING. Also, penguins have loads of natural predators. Plus, can you imagine trying to find your mum in a big crowd of identical penguins?

This book is sure to tickle all funny bones, and will elicit appreciative sighs from the adults reading it aloud, too!

Reviews

Quirky and funny, and with a memorable message, this picture book is amusingly different. * Carousel *

A small philosophy manual for readers of all ages is provided by the wonderfully original Penguin Problems [...] Lane Smith makes his penguins look like worried clones, which adds to the humour of the whole. * Observer *
