Penguin

By Polly Dunbar

Synopsis

Ben is delighted when he rips open his present and finds a penguin inside. 'Hello, Penguin!' says Ben. Penguin says nothing. Ben tickles Penguin; he pulls his funniest face; he puts on a happy hat, sings a silly song and does a dizzy dance. 'Can’t you talk?' says Ben. Penguin says nothing. It isn’t until a passing lion intervenes that Penguin finally speaks ... and when he does, Ben discovers something that was really worth the wait.
