  1. JulieAnn

    If you like themes about two friends finding a creative solution to a problem, making a big difference to those around them and becoming successful, then you will love this book. The friends are two adorable birds – penguin and chicken (who seem an unlikely pair, but it definitely works!) And I particularly like how it demonstrates the virtue of patience in crafting knitted socks!

    Rhyming, environmental story about a penguin and his friend (a chicken) encountering sea pollution at the south pole. After some quick thinking and clever ingenuity, they figure out a way to recycle the waste into something useful. The illustrations are clean, crisp and engaging. The text is presented in playful swoops across the pages which will surely entertain young readers. At the end, there are lots of environmental facts and information that parents and teachers can use to further discuss with their kids. Entertaining book with a strong, important message.

    It’s amazing how one falls in love with these two characters in just a few pages. If, like me, you are keen on Penguins, Socks and Oceans it is the perfect book for you or someone else’s kids.
