Overview

My Penguin Osbert by Elizabeth Cody Kimmel, H. B. Lewis

Joe gets more than he bargains for in this tale of Christmas magic.

This year, I was very specific in my letter to Santa Claus.

Each year at Christmas, Joe writes a letter to Santa. But they've had a few misunderstandings in the past. Last year, for example, Joe wanted a fire-engine-red racecar with retracting headlights, and he did get one -- but it was only three inches long. So this year Joe is really, really careful. He describes exactly what he wants -- and on Christmas morning, guess what's waiting for him under the tree! Santa has brought him a living, breathing, black-and-white penguin named Osbert. Will anything in Joe's life ever be the same?

Fabulously illustrated by H. B. Lewis, Elizabeth Cody Kimmel's hilarious romp through the land of be-careful-what-you-wish-for offers a whole year's worth of holiday fun magic.

Her recent projects include a middle-grade series about Buffalo Bill Cody and the picture book WHAT DO YOU DREAM? Of MY PENGUIN OSBERT, she says: "I love everything about Antarctica . . . except being cold. I love the idea of all that ice and snow and wind, and I can imagine bundling myself up and hiking through the winter wonderland. But when reality sets in, I can't stand the cold, and I think that is how Osbert was born."

These days, he spends his time writing and illustrating picture books and designing characters for animated feature films from Dreamworks, Disney, Blue Sky/Fox, and Pixar, among others. H. B. Lewis currently lives in Los Angeles and misses the East Coast terribly — especially when it snows! This is his first book with Candlewick Press.
