10 Little Penguins

10 Little Penguins Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This inventive pop-up, featuring the mischievous stars of Jean-Luc Fromental and Joand#235;lle Jolivetand#8217;s 365 Penguins, starts with ten penguins on an icy shore. One by one, they playfully disappear from the scene as the text counts down from ten to zero. The flaps embedded in the book facilitate the storyand#8212;readers can make the penguins disappear and reappear! Itand#8217;s a stylish, humorous take on a counting book with winter-friendly, penguin-filled pop-ups.

Review:

"The French team behind 365 Penguins recasts the (substantially thinned) flock in a surprisingly subversive pop-up with rhyming vignettes that count down from 10 as each one meets an untimely end. As the vertically oriented book progresses, the penguins engage in chancy activities on the ice: '7 little penguins dine in an igloo./ The chef heats up the rich fish stew./ Fire and ice are a dangerous mix!/ Now the little penguins are only... 6.' Interactive features trigger the disappearance of each penguin--pulling one tab makes one penguin explode after overeating krill, while turning a knob lands another in a whale's mouth. The book's wicked sense of humor may trouble sensitive readers, but the final surprise in this little gem will assuage concerns. Ages 4 — up. (Nov.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
