KIRKUS REVIEW

 On this particular snowy day, Penguin Pete (Penguin Pete, not reviewed) takes his son, Tim, out for a walk. They have a snowball fight, go sledding, and slide down long slopes together. Suddenly, Tim loses his father in the snow. He is found by a seal who invites him for a swim. Tim knows that he must remain in one place when he is lost so that Pete can locate him, but he mischievously disobeys. Eventually his father finds Tim and they happily make their way home. The unclear message in this book may mislead the young reader. Tim's blatant disregard for an important rule doesn't even merit a lecture from Pete, and Tim leaves the incident none the wiser. The adorable illustrations are the only appealing thing about this dull, confused penguin tale. (Fiction/Picture book. 3-5)
