Polka Dot Penguin Pottery
AUTHOR: Lenore Look
ILLUSTRATOR: Yumi Heo
PUBLISHER: Schwartz & Wade Books
Aspen Colorado Kim Chee Lee likes to write stories in her tree house. She has realized lately she does not have much to write. Her grandparents think a trip to the Polka Dot Penguin Pottery shop is just what she needs to help her creativity. She isn't sure at first how to start but then is able to create a colorful egg.
I really enjoyed this book. It caught my eye sitting on the library shelf because it opens from top to bottom instead of left/right like the majority of books. It has a wonderful story line and the illustrations done with mixed media are creative.
