But instead he found . . .
When Penguin finds a lost mitten on the ice one day, he wonders who it belongs to — after all, every mitten has a mate! Prolific author/illustrator Salina Yoon's spare text and bright, energetic illustrations bring to life this endearing story celebrating love in its many forms, reminding us that the greatest adventure begins when you find your other half.
"In this companion to Penguin and Pinecone and Penguin on Vacation, Penguin spies a lonely mitten that someone dropped on the ground while he's out 'looking for love' in the ice and snow. Abandoning his first mission, he decides to track down the owner of the mitten. He discovers a knack for knitting cold-weather accessories for his chilly animal friends in the process, which leads to finding his 'perfect match' (penguin Bootsy, who is also an avid knitter). Yoon's thickly outlined illustrations of chubby animals pair comfortably with the simple text, which builds to a cozy and comical conclusion to Penguin's search for a companion. Ages 3 6.
