Reviews
Haughton's signature blocky style works well to capture the squat, waddling seabirds. Icy blues and crisp whites saturate the chilly landscape. Playful sound effects add levity and make for a fun read-aloud, but it is Daddy Penguin's repeated calm assurance that Mommy Penguin will come back ("She sure will") that grounds and steadies the book even when Mommy is faced with a brief moment of danger. . . . Female empowerment and penguin parenting at its best.
--Kirkus Reviews

No challenge is too great for the indomitable mother penguin that stars in Haughton's latest color-saturated work, a comic tribute to motherhood's never-ending labor. . . . Haughton's bold and blocky aesthetic brightly captures the exhausting and frenetic hustle of getting food into little bellies.
