This book follows the traditional storyline, the only exception being that the characters are penguins dressing and living like human beings. After the initial charm of this, the reader begins to hope for more. But alas, it is not to be.
Pictures are brightly colored and cute. I was expecting more Penguin-ish things to show up other than just the flipper. This book could have been so much more.
A child would probably enjoy this story even if they are not familiar with the original.
