Penguins don't dream! And, they can't fly either, but in this zany story from the bestselling author and artist team who created Olive, the Other Reindeer, anything goes!
Before the alarm sings ding-a-ling, one special penguin finds himself flying up, up, up and away. On his journey through space and sky, he meets some wacky winged characters, then lands head first in a penguin paradise. Was it real or was it all a dream?

Review:

"Space is no trouble... if you float like a bubble." For this dreaming penguin, the sky's the limit! Chongo Chingi drifts off to sleep one night, thinking about flying. Soon, much to the amazement of the flightless bird, he's soaring through the sky, startling geese, keeping up with jets, and zooming past oddly fishy looking planets and stars to surface in a world within a world, or a dream within a dream. In the spirit of the best fantasy tales, the story ends with the ringing of an alarm clock.

Penguin Dreams is a perfect takeoff point for any young reader with big dreams and an airborne imagination. J. otto Seibold's distinctive postmodern style, using computer graphics and lovely muted colors, is terrifically appealing. He and V.L. Walsh have teamed up on many other favorite titles, including Olive, the Other Reindeer and the Mr. Lunch series, including Free Lunch. Penguin lovers, rejoice! (Ages 3 to 7)
