Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this little book for my daughter who loves all things penguin except for the ones in Pittsburgh.
Before gifting the Spudette, I flipped through the book to preview it and ended up reading the whole thing in less than ten minutes.
For what it is,Flipping Brilliant makes a nice, welcome gift for a penguinophile and any animal lover. It's cute, entertaining, amusing, and informative, though I wouldn't necessarily add "brilliant" to the list of adjectives.

Regan's advice is mostly on the mark, and Chester's photographs are magnificent. In fact I see this as a book of wonderful, penguin pictures accompanied by short segments of text. My favorite penguin pic is the one accompanying the "follow your own road" advice. The four penguins are walking in single file ala the Beatles on their Abbey Road album cover. Too bad most young readers won't get the parallel.

I Love penguins and of course want to learn all I can about them. Now with this book, I can learn from them. It has very beautiful pictures and great "life lessons" This is a fun book to read when you have a few minutes or are having a bad day. Penguins remind us what life is about and show us to keep it simple. A great book!

Flipping Brilliant: A penguins guide to a happy life. Is one of the best books I have read so far in the past few months. Al though it's a short book it's very good. I would also recamend it for kids and should be a must on any summer reading list.
