Penguin Story by Antoinette Portis

Edna is a penguin who is sick of only seeing things that are blue, or black, or white.  She decides to venture out, armed only with a tasty fish for a snack, to find something to is not blue, or black, or white. Then, on the horizon, she sees something orange! Children will have a lot of fun guessing what this orange blob could be.

Antoinette Portis is one of my favorite picture book authors. Her other two books, “Not a Box” and “Not a Stick” are wonderful tales of using one’s imagination to make simple things, such a a box or a stick, something much more exciting!
