It’s always a good post day when we receive a book! The children are always excited, and I’d have to say I was just as excited about this one, as I am a big penguin fan, so I just knew that I’d love it…
Penguin in Love by Salina Yoon
When Penguin finds a single mitten in the snow, he decides to search for it’s owner. Unbeknown to him, on the other side of the iceberg, Bootsy the penguin is busily knitting away and dreaming of finding her soulmate.
When both Penguin and Bootsy’s wool goes missing, they join forces to solve the mystery, and as the story unravels they realise that perhaps they have become more than just friends . . .
A heartwarming story of life’s biggest adventure – love.
This book is adorable on every level. The illustrations are lovely, and I instantly wanted to befriend Penguin. He is a knitting-happy little thing, as is Bootsy, clearly a soul-mate from the first! And the story is so sweet, and original – how many love stories do you know based on yarn?! It’s an uplifting picture book, that Boo already adores and has us smiling throughout. Boo’s favourite thing is that they ‘love each other’. As I said, adorable.
Thanks very much to Bloomsbury Publishing for sending us a copy to review.

This sounds adorable, and perfect for my mum. She loves penguins and knitting. Maybe not the target market.
Oh, she would love it then! It’s so adorable:)
It really is 🙂
This looks like such a lovely little book. Penguins are sweet at the best of times and this looks rather cute chap. It is a nice one to read on the run up to Valentines Day too.
He is very cute, as is Bootsy 🙂
It sounds like an adorable story, perfect for this month as well being all about love 🙂
Thank you for linking up 🙂
Yes, absolutely. It’s totally adorable 🙂
I saw Penguin in Love in a bookshop, I think the idea of a penguin knitting is very amusing 🙂
It really is – we love it!
