Meet The Penguins
Written and Illustrated by Mike Brownlow
Published by Oxford University Press
Two penguins arrive with their cases, eager to make friends and play games. It isn’t easy to ask to play with others over and over again but they bravely continue on their way asking different animals on each page. Sadly, the answer is always the same…..no!
Sad and dejected they give up and ponder what to do next….until a little voice asks “Can I play”?
Well, after feeling so many rejections there is only one answer to the little bear. YES!
The cases are filled with amazing toys, tricks and fun and it isn’t long before others come asking to play.
What a lovely book to read and enjoy! The illustrations are colourful and bold. The animals are brought to life doing funny activities and there is some humour added in for all to enjoy.
This is an excellent introduction to learning how to be brave and ask to join a game, make a friend or try something new. The ending is brilliant and funny. I was chuckling to myself as I was reading.
