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.
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.
'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
