Your Personal Penguin by Sandra Boynton

This is a charming story of a slightly bewildered hippo and the earnest penguin who wants nothing more than to be his friend. The unique and touching relationship between these two quirky characters unfolds nicely over the course of the story as the penguin does his best to make the hippo realize what a great friend he would be. With text like " Now, lots of other penguins seem to be fine in a universe of nothing but ice. But if I could be yours, and you could be mine, Our cozy little world would be twice as nice. I want to be Your Personal Penguin". The story is a read-aloud favourite for many young children and their parents. Boynton always offers up something that is a little off-beat and fun, and Your Personal Penguin is a great book in this tradition.
