Milo is the youngest in a long line of Penguin Post penguins. But not for long--his mom has laid an egg, and now a new sibling is on the way. Milo's not sure how he feels about this, especially since delivering the mail has suddenly become his job. But bringing packages to his neighbors turns out to be more fun than Milo thought, and then a big surprise at the end of his route becomes the best delivery of all.
From Debi Gliori, creator of the acclaimed No Matter What and illustrator of the bestselling Tell Me Something Happy Before I Go to Sleep and Tell Me What It's Like to Be Big, here is a sibling story for any child who has--or is expecting--a new brother or sister.
