Product Description


"With expressive characters, bright colours, and playful text that changes size and shade according to context, this book is pure fun from beginning to end." - National Reading Campaign

Book Description

Most penguins are happy to eat fish everyday, but not Penguin. He yearns for something sweet, something tasty, something covered in pink icing. So Penguin journeys to the Northern Hemisphere in search of a cupcake. Along the way he encounters Walrus and Polar Bear, who don't know anything about cupcakes, but sure have a think or two to say about Penguin's storytelling skills.
--This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

HASH(0xa4d4f998) out of 5 stars A new favorite!!! March 11 2009

WOW! We just received The Penguin and the Cupcake from Amazon, and it's already our new favorite. I could tell by the cover that I would love the illustrations, and since my daughter (5) is obsessed with all things cupcake, I decided to give this book a try. I was hoping my daughter would love it, which she did, but I was not expecting to love it so much myself! We were both giggling the whole way through. The story is told in a very unique style, and the comments made by the characters are so funny. I also loved that there are several boxes of text with educational info about the environment. In reading the book a second time, I realize that the whole thing is very educational, but I didn't realize it the first time through because it was just so fun. The characters are darling, and all of the illustrations are so well done.....which includes the cupcake! You will be craving them by the end of this book, as I am now, LOL! I plan to share this book with my daughter's class, and pairing it with a gourmet cupcake (in a bakery box of course!) for birthday parties. I look forward to more publications by Ashley Spires :)
