A Penguin Story by Antoinette Portis

White. Black. Blue. Edna is so sick of seeing only white, black, and blue. The snow around her is white. The sky is black. The water that she swims in is blue. She knows there's something more out there, and she's determined to find something colourful to share with her other penguin friends. Just as in Antoinette Portis' books Not a Box and Not a Stick, A Penguin Story is a celebration of imagination and creativity. It's also a visually striking book done mostly in black, white, and blue, with only (spoiler alert!) a few colour touches near the end. This is a great story to share with creative children, as well as a neat book to give to older kids who might feel like they see things differently than other kids.

Find it at IndieBound.
