Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Moving all the way from the South Pole to the North Pole isn't easy for the young penguin Augustine. Uprooted from her home, she misses her friends, her grandma and grandpa and her old bedroom. There are all kinds of unfamiliar faces at the North Pole, and everything looks strange and different. When it's time to go to her new school, Augustine gets cold feet. But with the help of a few colored pencils and some inspiration from Picasso, this shy, artistic young penguin discovers a way to break the ice with her classmates and feel at home on the other end of the world. Augustine's penguinized versions of van Gogh, Munch, Picasso and others are a delightful way to introduce children to art. A clever, charming story told from a penguin's eye view, Augustine illustrates that art is all around us — and it is a language everyone understands.

Synopsis:

In this clever, charming story, a penguin named Augustine is nervous about going to her new school. But with the help of a few colored pencils and some inspiration from Picasso, Augustine discovers a way to break the ice with her classmates. Full color.
