Cloudy days change to sunny Water changes to ice Ice changes to water

The world is filled with changes — some we can control and some we can’t. They just happen. Some changes are exciting. Some are surprising. And some changes can even be a little bit scary. But some things, like a mother’s love, are best because they never change at all.
In this latest book featuring the dear little penguin, Mary Murphy once again has created an endearing and reassuring book that captures the complex simplicity of childhood. Children will be drawn to the bright, bold illustrations and to the similarities they see between themselves and penguin.

Mary Murphy has written and illustrated many bright, beguiling children’s books, including I Make a Cake, I Am an Artist, and Please Be Quiet. Ms. Murphy lives in Dublin, Ireland.

Everything about the book's design is appealingly bold, from the solid-colored backgrounds and thick, hand-lettered style of the text to the penguin's bright fried-egg, yellow-on-white belly.
