    6. This is a very strange story about a little boy who receives a penguin for a pet and is very frustrated when the penguin does not respond to him in any way, despite his very creative efforts The ending is quite sweet and interesting and while I liked the story, I thought that a similar story, Princess Penelope s Parrot, had a satisfying and appropriate ending or perhaps I just like it when naughty children get their comeuppance view spoiler After all, Ben did try to feed his penguin to the lion [...]

First off, I have a kid named Ben, so having the main character s name be Ben really made it fun for my kids This really entertained my 3 5 yr old kids, which doesn t happen often in non rhyming books The sentences are short and easy and the pictures are simple yet charming There are funny things that appeal to kids a lion eats a boy because he was yelling, but penguin saves the day and the overall message is sweet that you can be friends even if you don t talk like each other As a parent of a c [...]

    9. Penguin is just brilliant This is one of my go to choices for Storytime sessions Penguin is not too long, not too wordy, and has just the right blend of text and picture The illustrations are clean and unfussy, and allow children to spot what s happening right away The text lends itself perfectly to being acted out with the story The twist at the end never fails to give the kids that lovely ohhhhh moment when they work out that Penguin just expresses himself a bit differently Heartwarming messag [...]

So cute Took Zack to a library storytime this morning and they read this so we had to check it out and read again Precious illustrations story about a boy who tries to get a penquin to talk but the penguin remains silent all the while retaining exactly what the little boy, Ben, is saying to him Great ending Picture books that are quirky and than your average plot like this are a true delight.

    12. A story about a little boy called Ben who received a Penguin for a present Ben tries many different ways to get Penguin to speak to him with no joy until eventually, with a little twist at the end, he succeeds A simple, repetitive story with lovely illustrations that children will warm to.Age range 4 6A good story to read to young children or to have on a class bookshelf.

    13. OK Might be a little disturbing because the boy tries to feed his penguin to a lion and then the lion eats the boy.

    14. Both the pictures and the narration were amazing The shock at the end when Ben is eaten by the lion is just stunning, but it s solved well Great

    15. Penguin doesn t talk with words and neither does Alena This book made me think of her She seemed to like it.

    16. Cute, has repetition and a rhythm, but not a lot of plot or new words to teach with Was quick to translate.

    17. The highlight of this book was when the lion ate the stupid child known as Ben because Ben was too noisy I was disappointed that Penguin got Ben back.

    18. This is fun and funny Spoiler alter My favorite part is when the kid gets eaten by a lion for being too noisy Great to pretend that s the end for a moment.

This picture book is about a small boy called Ben who receives a penguin as a gift, however he quickly becomes frustrated when the penguin will not respond to any of his invitations to interact or play This is a humorous book that young children would enjoy, especially when Ben is eaten by a blue lion I do feel the lion is an odd edition to the story as it appears from nowhere Perhaps Dunbar is cleverly showing different emotions children experience through friendships, or that the penguin and t [...]

    20. This book was odd and the illustrations are really cute I think the book fell flat honestly It is not fantastical enough to be clearly fantasy, and it is too simplistic for that The boy is given a penguin and then a lion just happens to be hanging around The boy gets eaten The penguin defends him No moral, no subtle explanation of imaginationjust weird.
