    1. “Little Penguin’s Tale” is a cute story from Audrey Wood and it details the adventures of a naughty penguin who wonders away from home and meets some unusual animals along the way. “Little Penguin’s Tale” is like the Arctic version of “Peter Rabbit” and is surely to be a delight for both children and adults. Audrey Wood’s latest children’s book is full of color and creativity as it details the adventures of a naughty little penguin who runs away from the other penguins and Gr [...]

    2. Cute illustrations, but not a great story. My objection to this book is that the little penguin goes to the Walrus Club. The two species are literally at polar opposites. Yes, it's a children's book, but let's keep the facts straight for the kids, ok?

    5. Little Penguin's Tale is a story about a penguin who wanders off away from his group. His grandma is telling the story and is using it as a lesson to the other young penguins. The little penguin gets into some funny situations as well as some dangerous ones. In the end, the penguin ends up almost getting eaten by a whale but escapes. He ends up losing his tail and that is why the book is funny because it's not only a tale, it's about how a little penguin loses his tail. I liked this story becaus [...]

    7. This book is one that teaches a lesson. A grandmother penguin is sharing a story of long long ago in order to teach the young penguins the dangers of running off.A book of brightly colored pictures, the illustrator used the space available on each page wisely. The illustrations covered the entire page on both pages throughout the book. The pictures are extremely eye catching but do not detract from the words. Each picture helps the reader have a better understanding of what the book is saying. I [...]

    8. This is a funny and somewhat odd story about a grandmother penguin telling little penguins about a naughty little penguin who had an adventure. It's a cautionary tale that shows what can happen if you don't listen to your grandmother, but she does agree to modify the sad ending for the sake of her listeners. The illustrations are colorful and the story is entertaining.

    9. This book was ok, but I think it had some inappropriateness in it. This book talks about the misbehavings of a hard partying penguin that dies when he passes out on a sheet of ice. I don't think it is good for its intended audience which is younger elementary students. However this book could be implemented in a lesson about the artic or in a animal science lesson about penguins.

    10. A tale about a little penguin who wandered away from his Grand Nanny and friends to have an adventure. Each time you think something horrible will happen, it doesn't. Until the end, that is. When Grand Nanny sees the young ones' reaction to her story, she swiftly changes the ending to be much less dire.Good for preschool storytimes.

    11. How can you go wrong with a book about penguins I thought to myself when I picked this up off the shelf. What the??? Who writes something like this for little kids? Little Penguin gets eaten by a whale, and then the author goes "Psych".d it turns out that there is an alternate ending. That's not right.

    12. Didn't choose this one based on the fact that the little penguins are all eating tropical fruit. For no reason -_- I know that is a silly reason oh, well. Also, there really weren't any redeeming qualities in my opinion. The story was just Meh.

    13. Publishers Weekly (January 11, 1993)Grand Nanny Penguin tells her brood an extravagant cautionary tale; PW said, ``With outlandish humor and fabulous color illustrations, Wood serves up a goodnatured romp across the polar cap.'' Ages 3-7. (Jan.)

    14. A nanny penguin tells the story of what a little penguin should not do, while she is telling the story a little penguin does what she warns not to do Used this for setting, talking about Antarctica, but its a great story about children ignoring the warnings of adults
