Duck and Penguin Do Not Like Sleepovers
Maud and Betty are best friends. They are so excited to have a sleepover and bring their stuffed animals Duck and Penguin to enjoy the evening. It’s evident from their facial expressions that Duck and Penguin are less than thrilled to be there. Everything from Duck throwing Penguin to Penguin tripping Duck plus more shenanigans happen throughout the night until Betty and Maud go inside for a long time. Duck and Penguin decide to adventure off to get to their beloved humans until something begins following them. Will they team up and survive the night or leave the other one as collateral?
The writing is simple and clever. It shows how sometimes you might have to be with someone you don’t like very much, but something might ultimately bring you together. I loved that it was the girls that were friends and the stuffed animals having the problems.
The illustrations truly showed the story of Duck and Penguin from enemies to friends. I appreciated the mini illustrations at the beginning and end of the book showing how the relationship was at the beginning and how it changed at the end. The illustrator is gifted. I appreciated the unique style.
My three-year-old, who wanted to read it over and over, and my six-year-old thought this book was belly laughing hilarious.
