My Penguin Osbert in Love

Hardcover (Candlewick Dec. 14, 2010)
"Joe’s first-person narrative is childlike, yet wonderfully evocative. . . .The artwork glows with color and warmth. A winner for winter storytimes." —BOOKLIST

Joe couldn’t be more surprised to find his friend Osbert knocking at his front door—AWOL from the zoo—with an invitation to a South Pole extravaganza under his wing. Since penguins can’t fly, and Joe has a helicopter from Santa, the boy is soon piloting a bunch of penguins on a long journey south. But when Osbert ignores the southern lights and only has eyes for a penguin named Aurora, Joe starts to worry. Will he ever get back in time for his own family’s Midwinter Bash?
