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.
