I Met a Penguin


Featured image is a spread reproduced from <i>I Met a Penguin</i>.Prolific children's author Frank Asch (born 1946), best known for his Moonbear series, first published I Met a Penguin, one of his first books, in 1972. This reissue brings Asch's tender tale of interspecies romance back into print in a delightful clothbound edition.
Readers are introduced to a lion who lives happily with his friends on an island until, one day, stung by a friend's criticism of his abilities as a fisherman, the lion drifts out to sea to think. He lands at the South Pole, where he meets what one contemporary review called "a paragon of a penguin." When the lion finds himself home again, he looks back: "I met a penguin as strong as an elephant, as gentle as a dove, as pretty as a peacock, and I fell in love."
