From Our Editors

Seven little penguins snuggle together in a cozy huddle as their Grand Nanny Penguin tells them a story of long ago. "Once there was a little penguin just like you", she begins. "Just like you--except he didn't listen to his Grand Nanny's tales". But wait! One of the seven little penguins isn't listening now, either. Full-color illustrations
