Review

Ben is given a penguin as a present. Try as he might, however, he cannot get a reaction from his inscrutable companion.

He pokes him, sings for him and eventually fires him into outer space but to no avail – Penguin still ignores him. Ben loses his temper with Penguin, so a big blue lion gobbles him up.

Ben's saviour appears in an unlikely form causing him to realise that penguin loves him after all, in his own special way.

Polly Dunbar's illustrations are gorgeous and her palette stylish - from the endearing Ben's rosy cheeks to the magnificent turquoise lion who eats him up. A delightful book.

Also available as an app that allows the reader to zoom in on the illustrations and text.
