Review: Parcel for Penguin

Penguin has just received a parcel, but what could it be? He takes a guess, but his friends don’t think he’s guessed right.

What could the parcel possibly be?

Parcel for Penguin is a fun picture book that builds anticipation and gets readers involved in the story, thinking about and guessing what the parcel is.

It’s short, sweet and entertaining, with fun and funky illustrations that pop with bold colours and sprinklings of textured snow on every page. Make sure you check out the end papers too, because they are truly a delight.

Kids love getting mail (I mean who doesn’t), so they’re going to adore this book and the mystery it holds. I very much doubt you’ll guess what penguin’s parcel is, but the reveal will bring a smile to your face.

Good fun.

Good read.

Good picture book by the super talented Shelley Knoll-Miller.
