Description

Everyone's favorite penguin--and the star of two best-selling readers in clubs and fairs--is back in another adorable adventure!



Tony Baloney is excited. It's Pen Pal Month at school. Tony hopes he and his new pen pal Sam will become friends for life. It looks promising. The two have a lot in common: Sam rides a scooter, plays baseball, is a middle-child, and has a stuffed animal buddy, just like Tony! But when Sam's class comes to visit, Tony gets a big surprise: Sam is a girl! Can Tony be friends for life with a GIRL?
