Reviews

[A] sprightly author-illustrator debut... Graphic shapes in pencil and bold gouache colors not only make for striking compositions, they suggest humor in the simplest of ways. Clever details abound, like the underground map of the penguin's escape via subway and the animals' image-only dialogue bubbles.The penguin in peril prevails in this fresh and funny English import.
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Hancocks's artwork is first cousin to Maira Kalman's, a series of cheerful gouaches in which grown-up metropolitan civilization is depicted with childlike charm. Cheeky humor crowds the pages; in the restaurant, the penguin joins a procession of formally dressed waiters into the dining room, holding the skeleton of the fish he's just downed like a trophy.
--Publishers Weekly The fun is finding the waddling penguin as he stays one step ahead of the felines, hiding amongst black-and-white nuns, riding the subway, and waiting on tables. ... The mixed- media pictures are delightfully comical but show serious graphic artistry as well. The design, with its panels and spreads, will keep young listeners--and their readers--on their toes.
--Booklist Online The cartoon-style illustrations are bright, cheerful, droll, and perfect for this tale.
--Library Media Connection This wacky tale by Helen Hancocks will keep little ones giggling.
