Award-winning author and artist Bob Barner combines colorful collage images and whimsical verse to make this a funny, bouncy, informative introduction to the world of penguins.

PreSchool-Grade 1—Colorful collages depict plump penguins performing a plethora of penguiny pastimes—tobogganing into the ocean, cuddling for warmth, honking to attract a mate. Barner's simple rhyming text presents a variety of the birds—those that delight in Antarctic cold and others that bask in Galapagos sunshine, some that lay eggs in burrows, and others that nestle their eggs on the tops of their leathery feet. Some facts fill the facing pages (such as "What do penguins eat?" accompanied by cut-outs of squid, fish, and krill), and a final spread proffers a parade of all 17 species, including data on global location, size, and weight. This effervescent effort will be just the thing for youngsters not yet ready for Gail Gibbons's informative Penguins! (Holiday House) or the more sophisticated rhymes of Judy Sierra's Antarctic Antics: A Book of Penguin Poems (Harcourt, both 1998).—Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY
