The Vagabond Penguinby Tony Esposito
One day, the vagabond
They say the grass is always greener on the other side, but have you ever heard that the ice is smoother on the other side of the pond? For a curious young penguin, the "other side" holds wonder and promise. He lives a happy life with his family and friends, but he can't help feeling there's more to the world than their little slice of ice.
One day, the vagabond penguin sets out on an adventure to find his own way. On this journey, he makes new friends; he takes a ride on a friendly polar bear's back and gets directions from a fishing Eskimo. Finally, the brave penguin meets Habnasher McGrote-a grumpy seal who has forgotten how to have fun.
The Vagabond Penguin is a tale of icy exploration and self-discovery as a young penguin discovers what it's like on the other side of his world. But what happens when he gets homesick? Will he be able to find his way home? With the help of new friends, he just might ... and warmth and love are waiting!

This is the type of kids book that I don't mind reading over and over to my daughter, who sometimes gets on a kick and won't allow diversity of any kind. :) Lovely story. Great pictures.
Highly recommend, great bedtime book for the kids, or an early self reader. My daughter read this to my younger sons, she got some great practice in reading, and they loved the story.... When asked if he liked the book, my eldest son said "no!". When asked why he said "because I want to keep reading it, and it's finished!!!"... enough said
