Penguin Problems by Jory John - NO

John, Jory Penguin Problems, illustrated by Lane Smith.  PICTURE BOOK.  Random House, 2016.  $18. 

The little penguin has nothing good to say about his day or about anything around him.  A walrus comes along with some good advice – but the change in attitude only lasts so long.

I love the illustrations so much in this book, but I am not so thrille about the page after page after page after page of the penguin’s whining.  Then the walrus (who I was hoping would eat the penguin) spouts out an overfull page of advice, which the penguin promptly ignores and goes back to complaining. 

NOT RECOMMENDED.  Cindy, Library Teacher
