Penguin and Pinecone

Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing

Penguin would like to keep the pinecone he finds, but soon realises that it was lost and isn’t happy in the snowy land in which he lives. He returns it to the forest, and the scarf he carefully wraps round it helps him to identify a lovely surprise when he revisits the forest the next year.

Yoon's text is simple, sincere and straightforward, making the point that friendships should never be forced and that everyone should be allowed to flourish where and how they are happiest. The illustrations are as simple and bold as the text, ideal for even the youngest readers. Altogether, Penguin and Pinecone is not simply a moral tale but a heartfelt and heart-warming story that will charm children and their parents.
