Reviews

A penguin's journey to reunite with his friend supplies the premise behind this understated and elegantly designed interactive introduction to antonyms. The use of large, well-integrated flaps creates a satisfying sense of motion as readers help Little Penguin travel through the green-blue water past bloblike ocean flora and a variety of fauna, flecked with grainy or marbled patterns... Sweeping blues and grays emphasize the vastness of the water keeping the friends apart, making their eventual reunion especially tender.
--Publishers Weekly

Little Penguin sets out on a preposition-rich swim to visit a friend on a distant iceberg. ... The visual rises and falls in Little Penguin's journey create a simple, soothing flow. A pleasing, low-key dip into the ocean of language as well as water.
--Kirkus Reviews

The digital artwork is dark and cool, with the texture of block prints and the clean lines of papercut.
