It ain’t easy being a penguin.Learn more about this title.
We all love penguins. They have that silly little waddle, they huddle together and it’s adorable, Morgan Freeman chronicles their epic journeys. “Shoot, I’d love to BE a penguin! What a carefree life!”, some might say. But the grass isn’t always greener, my friends. Penguins have it rough, too. I mean, it is FREEZING down there. They’re constantly being hunted. Plus, can you imagine trying to find your mom in a big ol’ crowd of identical penguins? No, thank you.
Jory John and Lane Smith bring us all back to reality with this eye-opening look at the day-to-day struggle of the modern penguin. Children will laugh at the penguin’s goofy complaints, while adults will identify closely with his oppressive anxiety.
