When well-mannered Elliot reluctantly visits the aquarium with his distractible father, he politely asks whether he can have a penguin - then removes one from the penguin pool into his backpack. The fun of caring for a penguin in a New England Victorian house is followed by a surprise revelation by Elliot's father. Paperback Formats Available for Schools Only.


"This read-aloud set is the perfect combination of a cleverly written and very creatively illustrated book…and narration provided…is spot-on." - Starred Review, School Library Journal
"Robertson Dean's spot-on narration and Caldecott Honor winner David Small's black and white drawings, with splashes of color here and there, are a perfect match in this humorous tale of misunderstanding." - School LIbrary Journal
