A Penguin Story by Antoinette Portis

From the author of Not a Box, this is a story about curiosity and dreamers. Edna the penguin is looking for something more. She only knows three colors — white ice, black night and blue sea. And while her penguin friends are content with their surroundings, she spends her days searching for something else — there must be a a new color out there. And one day, she finds it: a bright orange Antarctic research station — with scientists wearing bright orange coats, and traveling in a bright orange plane. Edna was thrilled. As they were leaving, a scientist gave her one of his gloves. And the next day, Edna stood atop an iceberg wearing the bright orange glove like a hat, wondering, "What else could there be?”
