Penguins of America by James & Jack Patterson


This charming book is filled with page after page of full-colour illustrations of penguins doing things people usually do - singing, commuting to work, watching a 3D movie, having a dinner at a restaurant, queuing for coffee in the morning, and more!

Each page is accompanied by a single, most humorous sentence that serves as a caption for every drawing. I'm impressed by the wit and the generous use of puns in the writing. Although pithy, they do their work well.

When I showed this book to a friend of mine, she commented that "it was very nice" but was disappointed that there was a lack of a coherent storyline to join the various images together. I, on the other hand, like the fact that it was organised this way. I quite enjoyed the complete randomness of the book.

Do take note that this is not for children but would make a clever gift for a birthday.
