From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-Penguin Small meets Snowman, who helps him escape from some ill-tempered polar bears. However, the bears stomp on the ice until it breaks off, becoming a mini-iceberg, with Penguin and Snowman floating away from their home on the North Pole. They land on a tropical island (North Pole snow never melts) filled with wondrous animals, especially a Neverwozanoceros. Missing his friends, who have gone to the South Pole to escape the polar bears, Penguin sets out in Snowman's hat to find them, leaving his tearful friend behind. After a storm at sea and a ride on the nose of a whale, he reaches his destination. Colorful, appealing illustrations, with fold-out pages for the island, a glossy fold-out insert of the whale, and a small cloud extension, will delight preschoolers. However, the story mistakenly leads children to believe that penguins live or once lived among Eskimos at the North Pole.
