You'd think that a penguin stranded on an ever-smaller block of ice, on a trip around the world wouldn't be so. FUN! But it is! There's our fearless penguin passing the gondolas of Venice. There's penguin floating by the Sydney Opera House! From the Aurora Borealis to a hilarious encounter with a surfer in Hawaii, this is a wordless journey that truly FROLICKS. In fact, the adventures are so amusing that most readers will barely register the nod to global warming until it's slipped right in on the breath of a laugh.

Both funny and poignant, this wordless picture book tells the story of a penguin whose small section of iceberg cracks away from the rest, sending the bird on a journey around the world, passing iconic landmarks along the way. The lovely illustrations include a glowing green aurora borealis and a gently smiling Statue of Liberty, among others. But what will happen when the penguin's ice floe gets smaller and smaller? The ending is a witty, thought-provoking invitation to discuss environmental concepts of global warming and habitat loss with older kids.
