really liked it

That's very nice that he built a nest for his friend. --Kindergartner
It's really cute, and it's nice how she [the aquatic biologist] helps the little penguin. --Tina, nine years old
A nature lover and admirer of all things cute, Tina takes right to this story of a penguin in a wetsuit. The story has a deeper meaning as well, as the biologist and her colleague employ ingenuity and perseverance in problem solving.
I find the rhyming a bit distracting when Tina and I share the story, but it really carries the story along when I read it to the kindergartners. The large size of the book (10" x 10") and illustrations makes it particularly suitable for reading to a group.
