Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Peter and Paul are a pair of best puffin pals who keep each other laughing. One day, though, while they’re out diving through the air, a storm tears through, and Peter gets lost. Paul awakens on the back of a friendly whale, who wants to help. When Paul describes his friend only as funny and noisy, the two begin a quest that takes them to parrots, toucans, and penguins, accruing more descriptors (black-and-white feathers, a colorful beak) as they go, until they come upon Peter, cruising through the air, safe and unharmed. Rough strokes and washes of color create a powerful sense of the oceans, beaches, jungles, and skies and present multihued and appealing characters, filling in the story told by the very basic prose. In the end, the characters simply stumble upon each other, but very young audiences will feel the suspense and relief of finding a lost pal and will enjoy this short and colorful diversion. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Jesse Karp

Review

Readers of all ages will swoon over Horácek’s lush, brightly colored mixed-media illustrations that lend life to the ocean, the different birds encountered, and Peter’s many emotions during his quest. This tale of friendship and perseverance is a must-have for public and school libraries alike.

Puffin Peter loses his friend in a storm. A blue whale offers to help with the search, and asks Peter to describe his friend. Peter does so, but neglects to tell the whale that Paul is another puffin like him. So they set off and find birds a little like Paul, but not like Paul.

A cute story, and simply but colorfully drawn, this is a very nice book, especially for a puffin-lover.

Very beautiful illustrations and a cute story line and this is a hit with my 9 month old and my husband. Of course as he understands the story we expect to get new enjoyment out of it, but right now he loves the bright colors and the way my husband gets into the story. Always nice when you can please the reader and the intended audience.

This is among my 3-year old daughter's current favorites. It's a simple story, but witty and delightful. Great illustrations to accompany the tale of a puffin in search of his pal (with the assistance of a friendly whale) after a storm separates them. The perfect addition to a library for a boy or a girl. Would also make a great gift!

My daughter in law and I love reading this sweet story to young girls. Three year old and eighteen month old--both love the story and are puffin fans. I purchased a puffin stuffed toy which adds to the enjoyment. The story has an educational value as the girls now know the difference between certain birds.

My boys got given this book. The story's a bit dull. And feels like a total rip off of monkey puzzle by Julia Donaldson,chick is a much much nicer book to read than this one.

Glad I didn't pay for it
