Description

When Penguin and Bootsy plan a field trip in search of Fall, Penguin's little brother, Pumpkin, wants to come. Pumpkin is heartbroken to find out he's too little to go, and when Penguin tries to say good-bye, his brother is nowhere to be found! At the farm, all the pumpkins Penguin sees remind him of his own special Pumpkin.

So Penguin and Bootsy bring a special surprise home to share a little touch of Autumn with Pumpkin. Prolific author/illustrator Salina Yoon's spare text and bright, energetic illustrations bring to life this endearing story celebrating Autumn and family in many forms!



Praise For Penguin and Pumpkin

“Yoon's cute, boldly lined characters and graphic compositions tell the story in a series of spots, full-page images, and thought bubbles. This picture book, like many before it, proves that love comes in many forms.” —Booklist, on Penguin and Pinecone

“Crisp illustrations that capture a genuinely loving heart . . . a strong if whimsical choice for those separated from loved ones.” —Kirkus Reviews, on Penguin and Pinecone

“Simple yet affecting . . . ideal for a lesson plan on friendship, this book explores the theme sweetly and boldly.” —Library Media Connection, on Penguin and Pinecone

“This delightful companion to Penguin and Pinecone presents another parable of friendship, this time with an exotic tropical crab. With her signature thick lines, pure colors and scratchy textures, Yoon creates a beach backdrop to showcase Penguin's tender personality. Lesson learned: The magic of friendship does not depend on where you are or what you are doing--it is about being together and learning from each other.” —Kirkus Reviews, on Penguin on Vacation

“Yoon's story of an unlikely interspecies friendship is both funny and sweet . . . let's hope that, as the Antarctic Ambassador of Friendship, Penguin, too, shall return in more adventures.” —Horn Book, on Penguin on Vacation

“Readers will respond to this warm tale of finding love.” —Kirkus Reviews, on Penguin in Love
