Title: Flora and the Penguin
Author/Illustrator: Molly Idle
Publisher: Margaret Ferguson Books
Twirling, leaping, and gliding on skates and flippers, Flora and Penguin mirror each other in an exuberant ice dance. But when Flora gives the penguin the cold shoulder, the pair must figure out a way to work together for uplifting results.
Why you should read it:
When a writer/illustrator decides to create a wordless picture book, the “story” behind the artwork must be strong enough to convey all the feelings the actual words would have done. Author/illustrator Molly Idle has done just that. Young readers will delight in being able to “read” this picture book as they interpret the clever illustrations in above and below ice story.
