The Books

A Penguin Story

by Antoinette Portis

One Potato Review

Smart but simple – not an easy combination. This book is perfect for younger readers, who will appreciate the uncomplicated sentences and striking palate, but there’s a compelling story here also, about the little iconoclast who cannot help dreaming about different colors, and stumbles upon something so spectacularly foreign it’s even a little spiritual in its larger implications. Who were those guys? Experts on global warming, or a film crew studying the penguins’ every move? With crowd-pleasing souvenir gortex that is every bit a tribute to serendipity.
