"Dunbar's winsome mixed-media illustrations carry the day in a story that pulls a few punches on readers." --Publishers Weekly (starred review) A Bank Street College Best Children's Book of the Year A Cooperative Children's Book Center Choice A Baker's Dozen: Best Children's Books for Family Literacy Selection (Pennsylvania) Ben rips open his present and finds a penguin inside. "Hello, Penguin " he says. "What shall we play?" But Penguin says nothing. Even when Ben tickles its belly, does a dizzy dance, and sticks out his tongue, Penguin makes no response. What will it take for Penguin to say something -- or for Ben to understand what Penguin has to say? Spare illustrations bring whimsy to this offbeat tale, in which a little boy gets his heart's desire.
