A Mountain of Friends by Kerstin Schoene

A sad little penguin longs to “soar above the clouds” — somewhat tough to achieve since penguins can’t fly. But, as it turns out, nothing is impossible with the help of some friends — and you, the reader.

The author’s unusual move of breaching the fourth wall works well in A Mountain of Friends since the story really requires the reader’s assistance for it to achieve the intended effect.

Little ones will also be thrilled by the ‘turn’ of events — well depicted by the heartwarming illustrations — and the fact that they played a part in making the little penguin’s dream come true!
