A quirky tale from a rising talent -- in which a bossy little boy receives a surprising comeuppance. When Ben rips open his present, he finds a penguin inside. Hello, Penguin! he says. What shall we play? But Penguin says nothing. Even when Ben tickles its belly, does a dizzy dance, and sticks out his tongue, Penguin makes no response. What will it take for Penguin to say something -- or for Ben to understand what Penguin has to say? Spare illustrations bring whimsy to this offbeat tale, in which a little boy gets his heart's desire.
