A pleasant surprise. I'm starting to think I may have a fondness for penguins... ( )

Primary. This book is about a young boy who sees penguins at the aquarium and decides to take one home. He gives it a home at his house, but has to keep it from his father, who eventually ends up finding out, but accepts the penguin. I think this could be fun and silly for students to read on their own if they want.

This book has great illustrations, that are very eye catching. I also like the bubbles that the dialogue is put in throughout the story, it makes it very easy to identify and separate the dialogue from the narration in the story.
