Product description


A sweet and tongue-in-cheek story about remembering all the good things in our lives and trying not to worry too much, this stylish picture book has a Jon Klassen feel to its language and a positive message for little worriers. * BookTrust * "[...] hilarious [...] an Antarctic take on A Christmas Carol featuring a dissatisfied penguin and a wise walrus who sets him right." * Evening Standard * "[...] may well appeal to young adults more than it does to junior infants but is fiendishly cute all the same." * The Irish Times * "Ever thought you had problems? Try being a Penguin! There's too much snow, it's too cold, the sea has too many dangerous creatures in it, everyone looks the same. In fact, there seems to be no end to the problems facing a young penguin! But all is not as completely hopeless it seems. A wise walrus offers good advice and Penguin begins to feel that the world is not quite as hopeless as he had thought. Lane Smith's stylish illustrations brilliantly capture universal emotions of loneliness, isolation and the widespread feeling of being 'different'." * Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month November 2016, LoveReading * This book exudes humour both verbal and visual but put together the result is sheer gigglesome comedic delight at every turn of the page. * Red Reading Hub *
