RATED 5 STARS ON READERS' FAVORITE! "A recommended read-along book for beginning to emerging readers and older." - Carmen Tenorio

Penguins eat fish. But, what if they had pancakes instead? An animal parade with a delightful meat-free twist that even the most veggie-resisting child would approve of.

What Critics Say

More words of praise and dismay for PENGUINS EAT PANCAKES

"A gross misrepresentation of animal diets."

- zoologist*, a very grumpy one

"Silly. Very silly."

- Lila, aged 5

"A delightful read, with its wry rhymes, funny insight and child-like drawings!"

"PENGUINS EAT PANCAKES has three things kids love: animals, food and whimsy. And in reading this book with kids, it has kids' #1 favourite thing: spending time with the adults they love."

- George M Jacobs, long-time president of Vegetarian Society (Singapore) and student-centered educator with concern for all earthlings

"When I first heard about PENGUINS EAT PANCAKES, I was instantly sold and offered to illustrate the book. Then I made Lai Chow wait so long that she eventually did it herself. The result? Inspired, cute, whimsical, silly and educational epicurean musings, perfect for beginner readers and fun for parents. After all, who doesn't like penguins and/ or pancakes?"

"Abominable. Should be renamed PENGUINS EAT FISHCAKES"

- librarian*, who eats according to strict pescatarian guidelines
