5.0 out of 5 stars An awesome combination of jazz and penguins!, July 23, 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The Penguin Quartet (Picture Books) (Library Binding)
I love this book because it has two of my favorite things: jazz and penguins. The illustrations are adorable, and you can find something new in them every time. The pages are simply bursting with color. The plot line is clever and attention-keeping. This book deserves an A+ without a doubt!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cool book!, August 29, 2011

Anna Kastner (Upstate New York) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Penguin Quartet
Herbie, Miles, Charlie, and Max are bored with spending their time warming their penguin eggs in Antarctica. So they devise a plan to go to New York and play the coolest jazz while the penguin girls have their gobbling fish party. They explore the Waldorf-Astoria, Manhattan's jazz scene, fame and fortune until - crack - their eggs begin to hatch. They rush home just in time before their female partners return to greet their newborn penguin chicks and gladly reunite with their families.

A book about cool birds, cool music, and cool questions about equal rights for males and females, in short: A Cool Book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Jazz for Juniors...and Flightless Birds, May 4, 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The Penguin Quartet (Picture Books) (Library Binding)
Herbie, Max, Charlie and Miles Penguin find happiness and tasty fish in New York City, playing the coolest jazz around. This story has something for everyone: funny penguins and silly scenes for kids, jazz jokes and parenting puns for the old(er) folks reading the story at bedtime. Colorful illustrations and an album of the quartet's snapshots of their visit to New York round out the package. Pure fun.
