Silly story

How fun would it be to have a pet penguin? My boys enjoyed this book and wish they could have a pet penguin.

funny story

This is a funny story about a boy who ends up taking a real penguin home from the aquarium instead of a toy stuffed animal penguin from the aquarium's gift shop. Funny surprise at the end. Wonderful illustrations.
