Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Peter and Penguin wake up to snow on the ground and immediately get bundled up to play outside. After making snowballs and a snowman and enjoying the perfect winter day together, they return inside to warm up and share some cocoa.

In this companion to Ben Loves Bear and Bella Loves Bunny, the youngest readers will relate to the loving bond between a little boy and his favorite stuffed animal, and how this sweet friendship makes each day special.

Praise for Peter Loves Penguin

andquot;Gentle, soft-hued watercolor illustrations and sparse but sweet text contribute to this tender tale of friendship.andquot;

--School Library Journal

Review:

"Edna the penguin yearns for something more stimulating than a minimalist horizon. The endless white of snow and ice, the black of the night sky and the 'Blue, blue, blue. Forever' of the sky and ocean only increase her ennui. Readers know alternatives exist because a sunset-orange seaplane goes by when Edna's back is turned; brilliant green and orange endpapers, too, contrast with the limited palette and blocky compositions. Edna treks over icebergs to a revelatory destination, then brings her brood to meet a friendly human expedition camping in ambulance-orange domes and wearing matching jumpsuits; she proudly waddles home with a souvenir orange rubber glove. Portis (Not a Box) celebrates those who long for art and, with her own playful rendering, she inspires readers to celebrate, too. Ages 4 — 8. (Jan.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Cub knows all about the familiar world in the snow den where she was born. Whenand#160;she follows Mom out of their den, tumblingand#160;into the Arctic wilderness, she finds that the world under the wide blue sky is big, big, BIG! Itand#8217;s easy to be curious when thereand#8217;s so much to exploreand#8212;and when Mom is nearby. But when she thinks sheand#8217;s all alone, can Cub be brave? With spare, lyrical words and paintings that are both dramatic and intimate, Cuband#8217;s Big World tells a tender story of new experiences, homecoming, and the love between a parent and child.

Synopsis:

Edna the penguin only knows the three colors that surround her: white ice, black night, and blue sea. She is convinced there is something more out there. So she sets out on a quest—a quest for color. When she finally finds what she's been looking for, it's everything she hoped for and more. But that doesn't mean she will ever stop looking.
