14 posts | 19 read | 12 to read
A penguin levels with human readers about what penguin life is really likeand it isnt all fun and games. A hilarious first collaboration from Jory John (All my friends are dead. and Quit Calling Me a Monster!) and Lane Smith (The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales). Have you ever considered running away to Antarctica? Of course you have! Because its a land free of worries and responsibilities! All of your problems will surely be blown away by the icy winds of that lawless paradise! . . . Wont they? Think again, my friend. This penguin has come to tell you that his life down there is no more a picnic than yours is here. For starters, it is FREEZING. Also, penguins have a ton of natural predators. Plus, can you imagine trying to find your mom in a big ol crowd of identical penguins? No, thank you. Yes, it seems there is no escaping the drudgery of your daily grind, whatever it might be. Or perhaps weve just learned that grumps are everywhere. . . . Jory John and Lane Smith let us decide. This book is sure to tickle kids funny bones and will elicit appreciative sighs from the adults reading it aloud.

My first #fairyloot box is finally here! Sadly in my infinite wisdom I sent it to my parents house and not to my flat (I don‘t trust the post here) so I have to wait til next Friday when I‘m visiting them again to unpack it.
Unfortunately one of the books I ordered for #CupidGoesPostal was refunded, so I now have to find another one😬. I hope the other three box 📦 won‘t have the same problem!

This wine label looks like a picture book waiting to happen. Possibly not the most usual link though. (The linked book is also great)

nickimags Nice label was it any good? 2y
charl08 Not bad for the price, @nickimags ! 2y

As I was packing up my cube this week, I thought I had gotten rid of a ton of books and only packed a little. Now that they have all arrived at my apartment, I realize that I didn't get rid of as many as I thought... whoops! Now to find a place to put them... #penguinproblems #ultimatebookhaul

Hollie You could send them to me if you need the space 😉 3y
Kaylamburson Haha, I will keep that in mind, @hollie. I may have to give some of them up lol 3y

If the cover of this picture book isn't enough to make you want to read it, then you will miss out on the wonderful story Jory John has given us. Penguin gets a visit from a wise walrus who puts his "problems" in perspective. Some days we could all use a wise walrus in our lives. Lane Smith's illustrations are a delight! Thank you, Penguin Random House for the copy as requested.

Penguin problems are cute! Seriously, this book teaches children not to focus on the negative and instead appreciate the simple pleasures that abound. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

A very very funny picture book starring a complaining penguin who is taught a lesson about truly seeing the world around him. Highly recommended!

oh, how I love this book! Poor little Penguin has soooooo many problems, and nobody understands. Lane Smith's illustrations are perfect for Jory John's story about something that we all have whether we are young or old... ANXIETIES!!! #penguinprobz

Guys that BEA tote makes so much sense now. I thought it was a joke about the publisher I didn't get.

Bette This book was fun! ❤️😂 3y
