A Book of Fun for Penguin Lovers
Penguins. We love them. Seemingly upright caricatures of us, it is easy to bond with these black and white ‘little people’. They have become perennial favourites of cartoonists, because they are fun. They make us laugh. Waddle is a compendium of delightful quotes and gorgeous photographs that capture the essence of this amusement. Its intention is to put a grin on your face and a warm feeling in your heart — all thanks to these endearing creatures that don’t just walk, but waddle.
