This story about a puffin who is upset that he's constantly mistaken for a penguin teaches that, when feeling alone, angry, or misunderstood, it only takes one person to turn things around.

“Look at the funny little penguin!” and “What a silly-looking penguin!” Hearing this all day long is enough to make any little bird angry, especially when he’s NOT A PENGUIN! This is the story of a puffin who is upset that he’s constantly mistaken for a penguin. He finally reaches his breaking point and goes on a rant about the many differences between the two. A little girl stops him in mid-speech because she does know the differences, and he listens as she explains to her father why puffins are her favorite.

  • When you are feeling alone and misunderstood, sometimes it only takes the understanding of one small person to turn things around.
  • A charming picture book with 18 fun colorful spreads.
  • This book shows children what frustration and feeling alone looks like from the outside, how to get over anger, and how to reach out to others when they are frustrated.
