Book Review: Blown Away by Rob Biddulph

Blown Away

"Come on an unexpected journey with a fearless blue penguin and meet the friends he makes along the way."

Penguin is all set to try out his new kite, but he soon gets...blown away! Different friends try to help, and are instead carried along for the ride (laundry and all). The rollicking (yes, really, rollicking fits here) rhyme and understated expressions make this a plain old fun read-aloud, for groups or one-on-one. The happy ending has a surprise kids will be pleased to pick up on, and lends itself to a story extension. Little ones who can read will enjoy the humor found on the signs that are part of many illustrations. This is Biddulph's first book, but hopefully not his last.
