The Lovereading4Kids comment

Polly Dunbar has been selected as one of The Big Picture campaign's Best New Illustrators in 2008. This title was the winner of the 0-5 Nestle Silver Award 2007. We loved the emotional interaction between Ben and Penguin in this delightful story. Just you wait until you see a child enjoy it as much as we did. Polly Dunbar’s illustrations – a mix of mediums including collage, watercolour and pastel are a delight.

Synopsis

Penguin by Polly Dunbar

Ben is delighted when he rips open his present and finds a penguin inside. "Hello, Penguin" says Ben. Penguin says nothing. Ben tickles Penguin, he pulls his funniest face, he puts on a happy hat, sings a silly song and does a dizzy dance. "Can't you talk?" says Ben. Penguin says nothing.

Reviews

'Hilarious and really rather cute. It asserts penguins as being one of the most awesome animals on the planet. Not a book to be missed!' - Bookseller
