About the Book

The first I Can Read! book featuring beloved picture book character Little Penguin, star of Little Penguin Gets the Hiccups—a laugh-out-loud romp!

For new readers who are fans of Mo Willems’s Elephant and Piggie series and Adam Rubin’s Dragons Love Tacos.

A polar bear is coming to visit! Little Penguin has never met a polar bear, but his friends have heard they are scary, with sharp teeth and terrifying roars—and that they tell very bad jokes.

But Little Penguin knows you can’t believe everything you hear, right?

Little Penguin’s New Friend is a Level One I Can Read book, which means it’s perfect for children learning to sound out words and sentences.
