Description

Format available for schools only
On a momentous visit to the aquarium, Elliot discovers his dream pet: a penguin. It's just proper enough for a straight-laced boy like him. And when he asks his father if he may have one (please and thank you), his father says yes. Elliot should have realized that Dad probably thought he meant a stuffed penguin and not a real one...
Clever illustrations and a wild surprise ending make this sly, silly tale of friendship and wish fulfillment a kid-pleaser from start to finish. 2013 Caldecott Honor Book

Caldecott Medal Book


New York Times Bestseller

"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
