Description

What's black-and-white and evil all over?
Get ready to find out the terrifying truth....


Penguins. They're everywhere-gracing movie screens, Coke ads, and merchandise. But don't let those happy feet fool you. When they're not surfing or marching bravely across the Antarctic, penguins have a whole other agenda going on. And it isn't pretty.

In Evil Penguins, Elia Anie captures the antics of cute little birds who have gone over to the dark side. If you thought the worst a penguin could do is make you feel guilty about global warning, think again. Here are cartoons of penguins leading revolts, giving SpongeBob a swirly, causing plagues, clubbing baby seals, killing Inuits while dressed as ninjas, and wreaking havoc in dozens of other hysterically appalling ways. Both penguin lovers and those who know that evil can come in even the cuddliest packages will appreciate these bad birds.




About the Author

Elia Anie's love of penguins has led her to Antarctica, the Falkand Islands, the Galapagos, and Australia, where she has photographed penguins for POPULAR PHOTOGRAPHY and THE GALAPAGOS CONSERVANCY. This is her first book. 




Praise For Evil Penguins

"A fun and breezy read. Anie channels The Far Side with great success and maintains an acidic, devious tone throughout the entire book." -- Ain'tItCool.com
