Penguin Problems

Penguin Problems

by Jory John

It ain’t easy being a penguin.

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.
