The irrepressible, ever-original Sandra Boynton introduces a brand new Boynton board book.
Your Personal Penguin is a read-aloud, listen-along favourite for young children and the grown-ups who read to them. Fun to hold, the book tells the story of a slightly bewildered hippo and the loyal penguin who wants nothing more than to be his pal:
“Now, lots of other penguins seem to be fine
in a universe of nothing but ice.
But if I could be yours, and you could be mine,
Our cozy little world would be twice as nice.
I want to be Your Personal Penguin.”
Sandra Boynton is a popular American cartoonist, writer, and songwriter.
