Ben is given a toy penguin. Despite all Ben's efforts to make friends with his gift, Penguin says nothing and appears characterless. But the shocking behaviour of a passing lion prompts Penguin to show his true colours, and his love for Ben. This award-winning story is simply told with humour and is characterfully illustrated. It's great to read aloud. And the last few pages suddenly reveal Penguin's inner life - making this another good book for teaching 2-3 year olds how to think into other minds.
