Perfectly Polite Penguins Summary

Perfectly Polite Penguins by Georgiana Deutsch

Nominated for the 2020 CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal.

Penguins are ALWAYS perfectly polite. They wait their turn, they share their toys and they never forget to say please or thank you!

But then Polly the not-so-polite penguin decides that being polite is BORING! And when the other penguins start to agree... Uh oh! It's chaos!

Packed with hilariously characterful illustrations from Ekaterina Trukhan (10, 9, 8... Owls Up Late! and A Quiet, Quiet House), this laugh-out-loud picture book story is perfect for helping little ones to understand the importance of manners!
