"Penguins with People Problems is a 100% delight."
Elizabeth Gilbert, bestselling author of Eat Pray Love, The Signature of All Things, and BIG MAGIC

Penguins With People Problems made me giggle, frantically fold down favorite pages, and insist that the people around me laugh too, even if they were way too young to get the jokes. I'm practically passing them out."
- KJ Dell'Antonia, The New York Times

"Thoroughly random and absolutely hilarious."
- Lily King, award-winning author of Euphoria

"Like Sandra Boynton for grownups--only boozier and more socially awkward. Mary Laura Philpott's lovable Penguins With People Problems drink too much, curse occasionally, and like the rest of us, have less control over their flippers and waistline than they'd prefer."
- Ann Imig, Founder of Listen To Your Mother and Editor of Listen To Your Mother: What She Said Then, What We're Saying Now
