Have you ever thought: I have so many problems and nobody even cares? Well, penguins have problems too! Discover them in this hilarious collaboration from Jory John (All my friends are dead. and Quit Calling Me a Monster!) and Lane Smith (The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales)!
This penguin has come to tell you that life in Antarctica is no paradise. For starters, it is FREEZING. Also, penguins have a ton of natural predators. Plus, can you imagine trying to find your mom in a big ol&; crowd of identical penguins? No, thank you.
Yes, it seems there is no escaping the drudgery of your daily grind, whatever it might be. Or perhaps we&;ve just learned that grumps are everywhere. . . . 
This book is sure to tickle kids&; funny bones and will elicit appreciative sighs from the adults reading it aloud.

A tongue-in-cheek introduction to Antarctica features a plucky little penguin who argues that the region, far from being free from worries and responsibilities, is freezing, filled with natural predators and all but overrun by identical penguins that make it rather hard to find one's mom. Illustrated by the Caldecott Honor-winning artist of Grandpa Green. Simultaneous eBook.

"A penguin whines about the uncontrollable problems in his life."--

A little penguin argues that home, far from being free from worries and responsibilities, is freezing, filled with natural predators, and overrun by identical penguins that make it difficult to find one's mom.
