Big PB Planet applause for Penguin by Polly Dunbar (Candlewick Press, 2007). In this delightful, whimsical tale, Ben unwraps his present and finds it's a penguin! Ben gives Penguin a hearty hello, but Penguin says nothing. Nothing when he's tickled, nothing when he's prodded, even nothing when he's fired into outer space! Frustrated, Ben tries to feed Penguin to a passing lion... but Lion decides upon a different snack! Will Penguin finally open his beak and save the day? Dunbar's illustrations (even the lion-with-a-mouthful!) are charming, particularly the two ending scenes. Zoom on over to your local bookstore and bring it back to your home planet today!
