Ella and Penguin are best friends. So it only makes sense that they like all the same things.

But Ella loves tutus. Penguin does not. Ella loves finger painting. Penguin does not. Oh no! They don’t match! They must not be friends after all. Then again, maybe Ella and Penguin don’t need to like all the same things to love being friends. An irresistible follow-up to Ella and Penguin Stick Together!

Reviews:

Kirkus Reviews:

"Poor Penguin, while getting the short end of the stick in every situation, is a comedic gem. Bonnet renders Penguin’s face into many agonizing contortions until suddenly he explodes in frustration" (...) "Maynor’s childcentric text is funny and empathetic." (...) "Understanding each other’s unique needs is a tricky lesson to navigate—Ella and Penguin do so with charm and wit." 

Booklist:

"In her comical and relatable narrative, Maynor captures what happens when two friends are faced with their differences (...) Bonnet’s playful depictions zero in on Penguin’s amusing facial expressions and contortions as he attempts to wear a tight-fitting tutu (“He wobbled and wiggled”), eats a peppermint candy (“Hoo boy!”), and finger paints (“Ew”) (...)

 

The end result will leave young Ella and Penguin fans warm and fuzzy. Little ones who liked Ella and Penguin Stick Together (2016) will likely be delighted by the return of the darling duo."
