Review: Ella and the Penguin Stick Together by Megan Maynor and Rosalinde Bonnet

Ella and Penguin Stick Together

Ella has a surprise for Penguin—glow-in-the-dark stickers! But to see the stickers glow, Ella and Penguin must be in the dark. And the dark is so . . . dark! If only they could see the stickers glow in the light—but that won't work. Soon Ella and Penguin find out that if they stick together, they can face anything.

Don't you love when you open a new book, and meet someone you like instantly? In this case it is two someones! Ella and Penguin are adorable both in picture and in text, and the way they work together and encourage each other reminds me of my kids when they are at their sweetest (as opposed to when they are trying to drive each other up the wall). Any child (or adult-who-used-to-collect-stickers-and-trade-them-with-pen-pals) will immediately understand the draw of glow-in-the-dark stickers - and possibly dilemma of the scary closet as well!

Now, normally I detest gimmicky books, but how can they NOT publish this with a page of glow-in-the-dark stickers inside?! Make sure to grab some at the store before you bring this home - and possibly your very own stuffed penguin to have adventures with!
