A delightful picture book about getting to know someone.

When Ben rips the paper off his present, inside he finds Penguin. Ben can't wait to play with Penguin but soon discovers that Penguin isn't the active or talkative creature he expected him to be. Ben thinks he's being ignored. Ben gets angry. What will it take to make Ben's penguin speak? When Penguin finally does, it's the best thing that it could ever say and Ben learns that sometimes friendship isn't always as you expect it to be.

Whimsical and comical illustrations matched with fun quirky text.

Children will delight in the imaginative relationship between a little boy and his penguin.
