A Penguin Story by Antoinette Portis
The bestselling author of Not a Box and Not a Stick has just published her third picture book: A Penguin Story. This time Antoinette Portis writes about a penguin, Edna who is on a quest...a quest for color. Edna seems to find this world only on three colors: white, black and blue. No, it can't be. There has to be another color in this world. And that's when Edna set out to search...a search that might never really end. Written for a young audience (Preschool to grade 3), and once again, the illustrations are just simple but beautiful.
