The Lovereading4Kids comment
A Picture Books for kids that love Adventure.
Children will love this warm and witty story with its adorably entertaining central character. Poor little Henry, unlike all the other baby penguins who are having fun sliding on the ice and tumbling in the snow, Henry is not happy because he doesn't like the cold and dreams of sandy shores and warm seas. When a boat sails close to the ice, Henry jumps on board and heads off in search of sunshine. It doesn't take him long, however, to realise that there's no place quite like home.
