Barbara Zagrodnik Looking for the name of a picture book read by my daughter in about 1983-5. Book was about a stowaway penguin who is found hiding on a ship and made to swab the deck. "Swab" was a word she didn't know. It is not Black/White the Penguin, or Mr. Popper's Penguins. Most books we are finding about penguins are after 1987 and it was definitely before that. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

The Penguin Who Hated the Cold The Penguin Who Hated the Cold by Walt Disney Company

Amazon.com shows it's original cover with title from 1973
Walt Disney's the Penguin That Hated the Cold

She's set to private so we can't see or send her a PM. So, since it has been more than 2 years, I'm moving this down to Abandoned
