About this title


When well-mannered Elliot reluctantly visits the aquarium with his distractible father, he politely asks whether he can have a penguin--and then removes one from the penguin pool to his backpack. The fun of caring for a penguin in a New England Victorian house is followed by a surprise revelation by Elliot's father.

From the Author:

While I have written other picture books for a slightly older audience, including The Sea Chest, Lighthouse Christmas, and the Mrs. Skorupski series, this is the first time that I've written flat-out humor for this age group.David Small's illustrations are beyond perfect for my spare text. Highly graphic with only touches of soft color, they are the perfect black-and-white accompaniment to a PENGUIN story! As you read, watch closely for clues to the surprise ending in every scene that includes Elliot's father.
