“Edna the Penguin knows there must be something else besides this black-and-white world of hers - so she fearlessly strikes out to find it. Portis' bold illustrations and fun text are a delight!”
-- Shannon Grant, Books Inc., San Francisco, CA


Description

Edna the penguin only knows the three colors that surround her: white ice, black night, and blue sea. She is convinced there is something more out there. So she sets out on a quest—a quest for color. When she finally finds what she's been looking for, it's everything she hoped for and more. But that doesn't mean she will ever stop looking.
