My Penguin Osbert by Elizabeth Kimmel

Kimmel, Elizabeth Cody. My Penguin Osbert 31 pgs. Candlewick Press 2007. $7.99. Content G. PICTURE BOOK.  When a boy finally gets what he asks for from Santa Claus, he finds that he really might not have wanted a real penguin after all. Some very clever parents taught their son the lesson of a lifetime; don’t ask for things because you just might get what you wished for. This book was so cute and would be a great writing prompt in middle school to write about a time you got what you wished for and then wished you hadn’t.  EL, MS – ADVISABLE.  Shauna, reading teacher.
