“Crisp illustrations that capture a genuinely loving heart . . . a strong if whimsical choice for those separated from loved ones.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Yoon's story of an unlikely interspecies friendship is both funny and sweet . . . let's hope that, as the Antarctic Ambassador of Friendship, Penguin, too, shall return in more adventures.” —Horn Book Magazine on PENGUIN ON VACATION
