The Penguin Who Got Tired of the Cold

The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence, especially if your yard is Antarctica. Pierre looks exactly like the millions of other penguins there, yet he doesn’t quite fit in. He is disenchanted with a home that is only blue, black and white, and a menu that is fish for breakfast, fish for lunch and fish for dinner. So he asks his friend Wendy, a wise old seal, to join him on a journey to explore the world. Will they find the best place of all?

The Penguin Who Got Tired of the Cold is perfect for toddlers who love to pore over the colorful pictures while you read to them, and just as perfect for kids who are starting out reading for themselves. Its perfection even extends to kids of all ages who just love penguins.

And it tackles the age-old question: How does a penguin from the South Pole describe a fish to a camel from the Sahara?
