Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
"The team behind Olive, the Other Reindeer exposes the reveries of a flightless bird. This dizzying volume proves that high-tech illustration need not be chilly (even if the subject lives on an iceberg)," said PW. Ages 5-8. (Oct.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Seibold and Walsh (Olive, the Other Reindeer), specialists in hip digital graphics and comic excess, expose the reveries of a flightless bird. Chongo Chingi the penguin initially appears against a pale green backdrop, fast asleep. In the next spread, he floats in a powder-blue sky that complements his mango-orange beak and feet: "Chongo Chingi is/ DREAMING./ Thoughts are flying/ round and round,/ thoughts of flying/ off the ground." In his imagination, Chongo takes to the air from his penguin tank at the zoo, while an alarmed crowd of humans and animals watches. He waves to the multi-species passengers of a jet, soars in outer space and turns the universe inside out by surfacing in an Antarctic landscape full of wild penguins. His adventure concludes with a memorable, elementary rhyme: "Ring-aling-ling.../ Ding-dong-dingi.../ Time to wake-up / Chongo Chingi!" In every spread, whimsical icons and messages divert the eye, while high-contrast hues of icy white, raven black, pale blue-gray and yellow-ochre keep the tiny details legible. Readers can watch for allusions to the authors' Mr. Lunch series and for a red balloon released by an astonished girl during Chongo's flight. This dizzying volume, generated exclusively with software, proves that high-tech illustration need not be chilly (even if the subject lives on an iceberg). All ages. (Oct.) Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-A penguin with the tongue-rolling name of Chongo Chingi has an active imagination, even when he's sleeping. In his dreams, as Chongo spreads his flippers to dive, he becomes airborne. He looks below and sees a panoramic view of the zoo he calls home. He flies higher and passes geese, airplanes, balloons, a bat/vampire, planets, space creatures, and a host of underwater creatures. He then surfaces in a vast, frozen antarctic world filled with penguins and other figures. As his alarm clock intrudes into the dream, Chongo Chingi is awakened. This cutting-edge creative work is a delight to the eye and the ear. The computer art produces an endless variety of shades and tones in many soft background colors and figures that vary in size from a full-page penguin to dozens of figures on a double-page spread. The penguins are cuddly and the characters are animated and expressive. The brief rhyming text, which is integrated into the artwork, is eye-catching, rhythmic, and fun to read aloud. The book is best for primary grades; younger children might miss some of the nuances, but will still enjoy the language and pictures. Daydreamers will appreciate it, as will their teachers and parents.-Marlene Gawron, Orange County Library, Orlando, FL Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
