Its a nice story not just for kids. Its about being there for someone, and loving someone that you want to be their personal penguin.

This book is amazing. And if you go to the webite you can download it as a song which you'll end up humming to yourself frequently.

HASH(0x8a7d3b7c) out of 5 stars I want a personal penguin, too! 7 Oct. 2006
By Chick436 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Board book
This book has a gentler charm than many of Boynton's titles, but it contains all of the warm humor and originality we've come to expect from her work. It's the story of an earnest little penguin longing to be best buddies with a skeptical hippo. The interaction of words and pictures makes the relationship between these two quirky animals unique, lively, and touching. I wish I had a Personal Penguin who adored me like that! Boynton also deftly translates this story's appeal to music, and the book includes a free download of "Your Personal Penguin" the song, delightfully performed by Davy Jones (of "The Monkees.") If you like a sweet tale with subtle wit, you'll love Your Personal Penguin!

HASH(0x8aeca36c) out of 5 stars Another Boynton Great -- the free song is a must 21 Oct. 2006
By antiomi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Board book
This Boynton Book comes with access to a free mp3 of a companion song, sung by Davey Jones of the Monkees. The book (and the song) are simply about a penguin who wants to be best friends with a hippo. The illustrations are hilarious and the song is a lot of fun. The book as a stand alone doesn't seem all that interesting, but when you pair it with the song it is great! I have an 18 month-old who adores this book, but only when I sing it!!

HASH(0x8ac463c0) out of 5 stars Did you buy the stuffed Personal Penguin? 20 Oct. 2006
By Elisa M. Richardson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Board book
I'm not sure if many know this, but there is actually a stuffed penguin specially made to go with this book. Our local bookstore had it- what a cute gift set for a child! I must admit I've not been a huge Sandra Boynton fan in the past, but this was so cute (love the penguin) that I bought some as Christmas gifts and a set for myself too! I also downloaded Davy Jones from the Workman site, and I'm sure my nieces will love it too! Cheers!

HASH(0x8a793570) out of 5 stars My Granddaughter will love this!! 17 Nov. 2006
By KH - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Board book Verified Purchase
I am not familiar with this authors books, but am always on the lookout for a new book for my granddaughter (11 months) She loves music so I new she would like this and she does. I did have a problem downloading the free music mp3. After you download the song you need to change the mpeg to mp3. Otherwise it thinks it is a movie clip and it is just the song. Always a fan of Davy, maybe I can start my granddaughter young!!

HASH(0x8a7d34e0) out of 5 stars The hippo in this book is so nonplussed, it's hysterical 24 Jun. 2008
By Ulyyf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Board book
Basically, a short book about a penguin explaining his undying (kinda stalkerish, I must say) affection for a hippo.

Throughout the book, the hippo looks totally dumbstruck by all this attention.

If you're coming at it from a different angle, I guess it might be kinda creepy (the scene with the penguin shining a flashlight at the sleeping hippo comes to mind), but as my nieces know this is Not Really Appropriate Behaviour that just, to them, makes it funnier.

Found the song (downloadable... somewhere) to be a little uninspired though. *shrugs*
