From the wide-eyed wistful stare of the big guy on the cover all the way to the flick of a blue tail on the last page, Penguin has always been my very favorite Polly Dunbar book. I love Penguin. I adore Ben's apple green pajamas imprinted with white stars, the pants sloping downward a bit and the top rising up, giving us a quick glimpse of toddler belly. I love the expressive faces, the spare white backgrounds, and most of all, the way a simple story becomes much more. I'm so thrilled to find it has been released in paperback - only $6.99 and you can be loving it too!
This is a wonderful interview with Polly Dunbar back in 2008 from the Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast blog. Well worth reading!
