  1. love this whole penguin celebrations series. timelessly gorgeous, simple covers. i want to collect them all!

  2. I found one of these classic-designed Australian “Popular Penguins” in a bookstore here in Minneapolis. One more reason to envy people in Australia. Wish they’d extend the series to the U.S.
