They look like they’re decked out in formal wear while sliding on icebergs and flying under the sea. What’s not to like about penguins? Especially when you see them in Karen’s book display window!
One of my favorite characters in picture books is a penguin. He lives in the land of the pretty penguins, with his companions–Goodly, Lovely, Angel, Neatly and Perfect. His name is…Tacky. Tacky is an odd bird. But if you lived on an iceberg, you’d want him around too! If you haven’t already, try one of the Tacky the Penguin books this winter, by Helen Lester and illustrated by Lynne Munsinger. You’ll be enchanted. And laughing!
In the meantime, check out our new Winter Wonderland Book Display on the window seat in the Picture Book area. See if you can guess which books all the illustrated penguins come from. And enjoy our second December newsletter:
(and guess what? Our carpet replacement went faster than expected. We’re open early!)
