A quirky new tale from a rising talent -- in which a bossy little boy receives a surprising comeuppance.

When Ben rips open his present, he finds a penguin inside. "Hello, Penguin!" he says. "What shall we play?" But Penguin says nothing. Even when Ben tickles its belly, sings a funny song, does a dizzy dance, stands on his head, sticks out his tongue, and resorts to increasingly rude and drastic measures, Penguin makes no response. What will it take for Penguin to say something -- or for Ben to understand what Penguin has to say? Fresh, spare illustrations bring whimsy to this wonderful tale, in which a silent Penguin turns marvelously eloquent and a little boy finally gets his heart's desire.

My 2 y/o son LOVED this book. Had to renew so much I just purchased it.

Simple and cute. A short read and easy on the parents for repetative reading ;)

This is my favorite picture book. It's got it all, wonderful idiosyncratic art, great comic timing and a really sweet funny story. A real winner to be sure.
