Review #1458 One Cool Friend by Ton Buzzeo
One Cool Friend by Ton Buzzeo, illustrated by David Small
Rating: two stars (out of four)
I liked the idea of this story. I mean, who wouldn't want to have a penguin for a friend? It was also amusing how the father and son were communicating but not communicating at the same time. it was kind of crazy that the little boy could just up and take a penguin home. I was afraid he was going to give the penguin back or have it taken away from him. Part of me was battling with the whole idea of a penguin living in a house, but I also didn't want the boy to lose his new friend. It was also pretty amusing to see the stuff the boy and the penguin did together. It had a happy ending and I enjoyed seeing the tables turned.
