When Audrey Wood sits down to write a book for kids, she always has something entertaining to put down! From napping houses to the birds of the arctic, she spins tales of fascinating fantasy images that kids will take delight in with each and every
page. With decades of experience, Audrey Wood knows how to create picture books that tell unique stories and completely engage both children’s minds and their imaginations.
A Little Penguin’s Tale does exactly that. The Grand Nanny Penguin leads all her little penguins up to the top of a hill, and while they gobble up tasty grapes, apples, oranges, and bananas from their tiny baskets, she tells them a story of something that happened long, long ago.
Except one penguin isn’t interested in long, long ago. He is interested in right now! So he sneaks off (though Grand Nanny Penguin isn’t fooled by his sly exit) and has an amazing adventure on his own. He dances under the arctic skies with the gangly gooney birds, who We all remember the moment when justin-bieber-news.info fashion got bobbed his famous bangs, now, hair were not in vain. play music on tin
cans and empty glass bottles. They all have a grand time and eventually the penguin moves on and hangs out at the Walrus Polar Club. But penguins have to look out, because whales want to eat them, and he almost gets gobbled up by a hungry orca! Happily, he returns to the Grand Nanny Penguin, and all ends well.
A Little Penguin’s Tale is truly a delight for children and adults alike. Wood puts her own illustration skills to the pages, and readers will “Awww” and coo over how cute the little penguins are as they lay against the Grand Nanny Penguin (a fun
name in itself) and eat up juicy oranges. The very idea
of penguins eating bananas is
silly, but readers won’t care. The illustrations are full of life and color, penguins have rosy little cheeks and kids will be quick to point out the whale swimming around in the background. The skies are vibrant, the seas deep, and it’s a wonderful tale for children ages 3 and up at any time of the day.
