 Every day at the zoo the penguins swim, eat fish, play together and watch the human visitors. On rainy days it is rather dreary because no one comes to visit them, but on sunny days they have a great time.

  One day the penguins discover that someone has left something in their enclosure. The littlest penguin goes to investigate, and he discovers that the mystery object is a camera. The other penguins don’t know what a camera is so the little penguin explains that you are supposed to “smile at it.”

  Quite by accident, the penguins figure out how to make the flash work. The first time it goes off all the penguins get “bug eyes,” but after that the penguins take turns pointing the camera at each other and pressing the button with their flippers.

  In this wonderfully amusing picture book readers will get to meet a group of very funny – and very photogenic – penguins. With its simple text, its wonderful illustrations, and its perfect ending, this book is a must for young penguin lovers.
