Penguin and Pinecone by Salina Yoon


Penguin and Pinecone by Salina Yoon

When little Penguin finds a lost pinecone in the snow, an unlikely friendship blossoms. But Grandpa reminds Penguin that pinecones don't belong in the cold - they need to be in the warm forest far away. Although he will miss his friend, Penguin returns Pinecone to his proper home. Penguin dreams of a reunion with his friend and when they do meet again, he's surprised to find that Pinecone has grown bigger and taller than he ever could have imagined! This story of a friendship that endures and grows over time, despite distance, will ring true for readers of all ages. Illustrator Salina Yoon's spare text and bright, energetic illustrations bring this wonderful character to life, ensuring that readers will be clamouring for more Penguin stories.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
