Meet Penguin, the delightful character from Geisel Honor-winning author/illustrator Salina Yoon who is always ready for a new adventure--and new friends!
When Penguin finds a new friend, Penelope, he does everything he can to help. "Let's get you home," says Penguin.
But the elephant herd is out of reach, across a too-big ravine, Penguin stays with the little elephant, keeping her company and looking for a way home. As they go, Penelope grows, and so does their friendship! Soon they learn what they have in common--how they both can fly --and their new perspective brings a way home for Penelope. But they won't part for long!
With simple text and bright, energetic art, Salina Yoon brings to life this endearing story celebrating unlikely friendships, the challenges of growing up, and finding your own way.
