From the amazing success of the documentary March of the Penguins to the popular penguins in Madagascar to the penguin-themed movie "Happy Feet", penguins are everywhere! That's especially true for the family in "365 Penguins", who find a penguin mysteriously delivered to their door for every day of the year. At first they're cute, but with every passing day, the penguins pile up - along with the family's problems. Feeding, cleaning and housing the penguins becomes a monumental task. They're noisy, smelly and they always hog the bathroom! And who on earth is sending these squawking birds? In a large format and with lots of opportunities for counting, "365 Penguins" is sure to become a perennial wintertime favourite.

Though not quite the elephant-folio size of Almost Everything (2005) and Zoo-ology (2003), this new Jolivet still probably won’t fit into most oversize sections—but it should be just as popular with children.

Comical math problems and an ecological message form a memorable counterpoint in Fromental's story of 365 penguins, one for each day of the year.
