The human character, who made the mistake of allowing the penguin into his home, uses ingenuity and imagination to "make lemonade out of lemons" - so to speak. A surprise ending, which youngsters (particularly boys) will find even more funny than the penguin's, may seem inappropriate to some but it is really quite amusing. Clever, yet simple illustrations are an added bonus.
Otto Fishblanket's "Piddles the Penguin ..." is a book that delighted my 4 1/2 year old grandson - and admittedly, this Grandma. Others who may prefer that youngsters not laugh at "bathroom humor" will be less amused by Piddles. You should look at the sample and then decide whether this is a book that you want to add to your e-library. For me, it was five-star funny and a clever twist on solving the problem.
Colorful rhyming children's story about a penguin. He shows up at the door and needs to go to the bathroom. Problem is he doesn't make it there right away and ends up peeing on the stairs, on the floor, on a chair, etc.
The man puts him in the car to bring him to the zoo. They won't take him so back home and the penguin uses the garden to go pee. There is pee all over the house again and the man looks outside at the flowers, they weren't there the other day.
He has an idea of how to use the pee to become rich...
Other works by the author are highlighted at the end.
In Piddles the Penguin a man answers a knock on his door to find a penguin asking to be let in as it needs to pee. Of course it's a penguin so hasn't been toilet trained to human toilet habits so it relieves itself in a number of places and on things in the man's house. He decides to take the animal to the zoo but unrealistically a zoo keeper tells him they don't want a penguin that piddles so much, although where all the other animals go is never stated. The man though isn't prepared to just release the penguin onto the streets and eventually the two discover a very profitable relationship where both can live with the penguin's toilet habits.
So last night as we were scrolling through all her choices of books we could read together I told Lexy that she could pick anything she wanted, but first I wanted to read this story to her about Piddles. Grandpa said, "Oh yeah. if that's the one from the car," (meaning the one I had read to him), "you're gonna love it!"
So as I read the story she was reading along with me and guessing what would happen next and laughing right along with me at delightful little Piddles.
And then there was a surprise at the end! What a marvelous story! We both agreed this one goes in the collection of keepers!
