Penguin by Polly Dunbar - ESSENTIAL

Dunbar, Polly.  Penguin.  $6.99. Candlewick Press, 2007. PICTURE BOOK.  Content, G. This is a hilarious book about a little boy and his pet penguin.  The little boy does everything he can to get his penguin to talk to him: nice things like singing the penguin songs, and mean things like rocketing the penguin into space,  but nothing seems to work.  When a lion comes along and eats the boy for being too loud, the penguin bites the lion and saves the boy.  Eventually the penguin and the boy learn to communicate with each other.  Cute and funny.  EL (K-3)-ESSENTIAL.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
