Salina Yoon has written and illustrated yet another lovely picture book with lots of heart. The sibling relationship is a relatable one, as is the kindness shown by Penguin. There's nothing like experiencing Autumn on the snow, which is exactly what Penguin brings for Pumpkin!
Yoon's artwork always seems understated and quiet, but it has a hidden depth to it that presents itself as the story progresses. All the penguins are distinct and easy to recognise, whether it be because of hats or scarves or size. I think it must be difficult to draw large quantities of the same thing and still be able to tell the difference, and Yoon does an effortless job of that here.
Perfect for Halloween reading, Penguin and Pumpkin is a heartwarming story of how far one penguin will go to keep his baby brother happy. It's got a decent amount of text and is obviously fully illustrated throughout, and is another sure-fire hit for a very talented artist.
