“Friends come in all shapes, sizes, and species in this charming tale of an unlikely, but close-knit friendship between a happy penguin and a pinecone. Will it all unravel when Penguin realizes that Pinecone can't survive in a land made of ice? This sweet read-aloud with enormously appealing illustrations shows how friends of the heart are never far apart. If you love them, set them 'tree!'”

Description

When Penguin finds a lost pinecone one day, an unlikely friendship blooms. But Grandpa reminds Penguin that pinecones can't live in the snow-they belong in the warm forest far away. Though he will miss his friend, Penguin returns Pinecone to his home, dreaming of the day they can reunite. And when he finally returns to the forest to check on his friend, Penguin discovers that love only grows over time-and so do little pinecones! Prolific author/illustrator Salina Yoon's spare text and bright, energetic illustrations bring to life this endearing story celebrating friendships lost and found, and overcoming the odds to be with the one you love.
