Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Penguin Pete, previously encountered in Penguin Pete and Penguin Pete's New Friends , romps with some dolphins on his way back to his home colony. Later he finds true love with a blue-beaked girl penguin named Pat; they get married and have a baby by book's end. Readers will neither understand Pete's head-over-heels attraction for Pat, nor will they care. The plot and the characters--despite Pfister's buoyant watercolors--just lie on the page. Ages 5-8. (Apr.)
