From the author/illustrator of Colin and Lee, Carrot and Pea, comes another cute and quirky read—When Grandad was a Penguin. Hood’s illustrations are striking, bold and well designed, her story is brimming with wit, and Colin and Lee make a cameo.

Tried my best to get a penguin to pose for a #bookfacefriday, but they were not obliging, nor was the light. Never mind, me and my little still had the best morning at the aquarium, shaking our pretend ‘penny’ flippers and crunching our big shark teeth.
