My mother-in-law gave me a bunch of these Newbery award books, so you are going to see a bunch of reviews for them. I plow through these pretty fast.
Goodreads Description: A classic of American humor, the adventures of a house painter and his brood of high-stepping penguins have delighted children for generations. "Here is a book to read aloud in groups of all ages. There is not an extra or misplaced word in the whole story."--"The Horn Book." Newbery Honor Book.
- Fun illustrations! Those penguins are so darn cute!
- Why does the text only cover 2/3 of the page? They could put a lot more text on each page.
- Even though this is for a younger audience, I found it cute and funny. I chuckled quite a bit.
