"This seasonal tale, that's also a bit about little brothers, adventures and the endless diversity of pumpkins, hits the spot." --Kirkus Reviews

"Bright digital art with bold outlines and succinct narration with some dialogue make this story well suited for reading aloud." --School Library Journal

"Vibrantly colored illustrations add to the crisp, autumn feel. This book could have great uses during lessons on the four seasons and being observant of the world around you." --Library Media Connection

"[Yoon's] squat, chunky penguins and their quirky adventures should find a sweet spot with toddlers." --Publishers Weekly

"The appeal here, as usual, is Yoon's thick-lined digital illustrations with clean, saturated colors and adorable characters." --The Horn Book Magazine

"Yoon's cute, boldly lined characters and graphic compositions tell the story in a series of spots, full-page images, and thought bubbles. This picture book, like many before it, proves that love comes in many forms." --Booklist on Penguin and Pinecone

"Crisp illustrations that capture a genuinely loving heart . . . a strong if whimsical choice for those separated from loved ones." --Kirkus Reviews on Penguin and Pinecone

"Yoon's story of an unlikely interspecies friendship is both funny and sweet . . . let's hope that, as the Antarctic Ambassador of Friendship, Penguin, too, shall return in more adventures." --The Horn Book Magazine on Penguin on Vacation

"Readers will respond to this warm tale of finding love." --Kirkus Reviews on Penguin in Love
