Julia and I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It's witty, fresh, and the illustrations are funny yet sweet. They're seemingly simple yet filled with personality, like the story itself.

Synopsis

All of Penguin s friends are excited about the upcoming talent show, but Penguin can t seem to figure out what his talent is. He tries juggling appliances with Bear, doing magic tricks with Rabbit, and burping the alphabet with Fox, but he doesn t seem to be good at any of it. Stuck behind the scenes organizing, Penguin leaves the contest saddened, the only one who hasn t received a medal. His friends decide to throw him a party to make him feel better, but their festivities fizzle. That s when Penguin discovers he might have some special skills after all as he sets to work planning them all the best party ever.
Author and Illustrator Alex Latimer s quirky charm lights up the pages of this humorous picture book about finding your true talent.
