Penguin and Pumpkin by Salina Yoon (Bloomsbury Publishing)
We love love LOVE penguin books, and Salina Yoon's penguin stories are so fantastically cute that we just can't resist each new tale. We adored "Penguin in Love" so it's time to catch up with our star-crossed pengy couple as they face our favourite season head on. Autumn, ahh the turning leaves and all the awesome ways to celebrate the bountiful harvest that crops up at this time of year. Particularly pumpkins!
Funnily enough, Penguin's little brother is called Pumpkin but he's too young to set sail for the mainland to visit the harvest festival at a local farm. So it's up to Bootsy and Penguin to work out a way that little Pumpkin can be involved once they get back from their trip.
Charlotte absolutely adored Pumpkin, and felt quite sad that the poor little soul got left behind. But was soon cheered up as Penguin and Bootsy plan the perfect surprise for little Pumpkin!
We'll leave you to discover what they plan!
Such an adorable little book that makes us want to track down the rest of the Penguin tales. If like us you love penguins, you'll love reading about Penguin, Bootsy and Pumpkin and the perfect autumn!
Charlotte's best bit: She kept giggling about the penguin who was always falling asleep, and the awesome pumpkin boats the penguins make for their return journey.
Daddy's Favourite bit: The perfect way to start warming up for autumn and the bumper harvest of gorgeous Pumpkins (we love eating pumpkin soup!)
