Illustrated by Lane Smith


In this hilarious first collaboration from Jory John and Lane Smith, a penguin levels with human readers about what penguin life is really like ...and it isn't all fun and games!

Have you ever considered running away to Antarctica?

Of course you have! Because it's a land free of worries and responsibilities!

Think again, my friend. This penguin has come to tell you that his life down there is no picnic.

For starters, it is FREEZING. Also, penguins have loads of natural predators. Plus, can you imagine trying to find your mum in a big crowd of identical penguins?

This book is sure to tickle all funny bones, and will elicit appreciative sighs from the adults reading it aloud, too!
