The story’s ending has a hiccup that may cause a “Wait, what?” reaction, but turning back a few pages allows readers to fully enjoy the clever details and richly saturated colors of the illustrations.

Synopsis

Everybody knows that penguins live at the South Pole and polar bears live at the North Pole—but what would happen if, one day, a family of picnicking penguins accidentally got lost? When the hapless Pilchard-Brown family find themselves at the wrong pole, they need Mr. White, a friendly polar bear, to guide them all the way home.
 

About Jeanne Willis

See more books from this Author
Jeanne Willis wrote her first book when she was five—a slim volume about cats written in pencil and stitched together so that it looked like a “real” book. After that, there was no turning back. She had her first picture book published at the age of twenty-one. She has since written more than three hundred books and has won several awards, which are arranged in the attic where she works. She lives in London.Jarvis did lots of different jobs—including a bingo caller, a bouncy-castle painter, and an animation director—before creating his first children’s book. He’s always doodled characters and thinks that everything he’s done in the past has helped make him a better children’s book illustrator and writer…maybe not the bingo calling. He lives in northern England.
