Once there was a drawing of a penguin.
It was the cutest penguin ever.
The penguin knew he was cute …
And he didn’t like it one bit.
The penguin doesn’t just want to be cute – he wants to look like a REAL penguin.
But is there anything a drawing can do to change what they are?
Follow this penguin’s hilarious journey as he searches for a way to become less cute – giving all the other cute animal drawings in the sketchbook a stern talking to along the way.
This is my first picture book with Hardie Grant Egmont. I created the illustrations for The Cute Penguin in watercolour, gouache and pencil.
