Product description

Review

This is a warm and charming story told without the cloying sentimentality that can mar books for this age group ... Dunbar's characterisation is a treat. * The Bookseller * Polly Dunbar's sympathetic artwork captures the seesaw of Ben's emotions with humour and an almost heartbreaking accuracy. * Child Education PLUS * With simple, rhythmic text, flat colours, crisp shapes on white space and a big blue lion, this heart-warming book conjures - by minimal means - imagination, anger, danger and love, while encouraging small children to remember events, read pictures and laugh. -- Nicolette Jones * The Sunday Times * An animated tale of an unusual friendship, sweetly illustrated, with great comic moments as little Ben tries to entertain an expressionless Penguin and a final outcome that leaves readers with a warm glow * Junior *

Synopsis

Ben is delighted when he rips open his present and finds a penguin inside. "Hello, Penguin!" says Ben. Penguin says nothing. Ben tickles Penguin; he pulls his funniest face; he puts on a happy hat, sings a silly song and does a dizzy dance. "Can't you talk?" says Ben. Penguin says nothing. It isn't until a passing lion intervenes that Penguin finally speaks...and when he does, Ben discovers something that was really worth the wait.
