Penguin Problems by @joryjohn Lane Smith #BookReview #Giveaway

 
 
A penguin levels with human readers about what penguin life is really like—and it isn’t all fun and games.
 
Have you ever considered running away to Antarctica? Of course you have! Because it’s a land free of worries and responsibilities! All of your problems will surely be blown away by the icy winds of that lawless paradise! . . . Won’t they?
 
Think again, my friend. This penguin has come to tell you that his life down there is no more a picnic than yours is here. For starters, it is FREEZING. Also, penguins have a ton of natural predators. Plus, can you imagine trying to find your mom in a big ol’ crowd of identical penguins? No, thank you.
 
Yes, it seems there is no escaping the drudgery of your daily grind, whatever it might be. Or perhaps we’ve just learned that grumps are everywhere. . . .

With Awesome Annie!

This book is so adorable!! We picked up a few of the bags at BEA/Bookcon this May.  We were so excited when we noticed at ALAAC that they were giving the book away.  And even more excited when we found out we could both grab a copy.  Endy was not happy as she didn't get to go.

But this book is so funny with some great snark and humor!  Following along with the little penguin and all his funny problems will make you laugh out loud and have fun!

Although this is marketed as a children's book  I really think it would be better for adults who need some humor.  Im not sure a child would get the point of the book.  But its fun and cute with some great illustrations.  We can't wait to see what else this author and illustrator has in store!

If you need a fun good read thats light and funny then check out Penguin Problems.  You won't feel so bad about your own!
