With his vibrant, stylish art and spot-on visual storytelling, Chris Haughton turns to Antarctica for an irresistible ode to family bonds and awesome moms.

“She’ll be back soon, won’t she?”
“She sure will,” says Daddy Penguin.

The sky may be dark over icy waters, but Mommy Penguin is off to catch some fish for dinner. As Daddy and Little Penguin watch in suspense, Mommy swims, jumps, and climbs up a slippery slope, barely avoiding a plunge back into the sea. Well done! There's just one more hurdle to overcome, past some grumpy, just-awakened seals, before she returns to her anxiously waiting family. With a nod to the fascinating nature of penguin parenting, this boldly illustrated adventure from the creator of Little Owl Lost and Oh No, George! will have little ones happily on the edge of their seats as they root for Mommy Penguin.

One day, a daddy and baby penguin hang out as mommy penguin goes hunting for some fish. They watch with anticipation as she swims, jumps, and climbs, defeating every challenge to get back to them. Baby penguin fears for the mom but knows she will always come back. Not even seals will stop her from returning.

WELL DONE, MOMMY PENGUIN is an uplifting story about how strong mothers are and how they will do anything for their family. It also teaches about the family dynamics of penguins and how the mothers are the hunters and providers. The illustrations are bold and vibrant with their bright colors and boxy art scheme. The wording fell flat in a few places but overall the message is a great one.

Final Verdict: WELL DONE, MOMMY PENGUIN is the perfect story for fans of penguins and family relationships. It would make a good Mother's Day present as well since it shows how resilient mothers can be and it's a great story for them to share with their children.
