Leaving the zoo, Tina finds a penguin following her. She disguises him and smuggles him out. In his new home, the penguin tries many ways to stay cool, like standing in the fridge with the door open. Tina soon realizes that caring for a penguin isn’t easy. Thanks to Levert’s comical watercolour and gouache illustrations, you may never again be able to look at a pink beret with a straight face. mRb
