Sayin' "Sorry": Little Penguin and the Lollipop by Tadgh Bentley

I need help!

You see, I ate Kenneth's lollipop.

It looked so tasty--and it didn't have anyone's name on it. How could Little Penguin know Kenneth had a claim on it!

But Kenneth the Seagull is in a snit. He's marching with a banner... NEVER TAKE A LOLLIPOP FROM A SEAGULL!

Who knew seagulls can pout over a lollipop forever?

And Little Penguin needs help from her readers to get Kenneth out of his funk!

Can everyone please make funny faces to wipe the glower off of Kenneth's glum face? Can they jump up and down and act extremely goofy to make him laugh?

Young readers will probably be glad to help Little Penguin out with that, in Tadgh Bentley's Little Penguin and the Lollipop (Balzer and Bray, 2017). After all, it's no fun being stuck on an ice floe with a cranky seagull. Bentley's comic illustrations have great giggle appeal, and fans of his interactive picture book, Little Penguin Gets the Hiccups, (see review here) will be glad to pitch in to help end this seaside stalemate.
