A penguin turns out to be the perfect present in this beautiful 10th anniversary edition of an award-winning classic. This is the story of Ben, who couldn't be more delighted to find a penguin friend inside his present.

"Hello, Penguin!" he says. Penguin says nothing. Ben tickles Penguin, pulls his funniest face, puts on a happy hat, sings a silly song and does a dizzy dance ...but still Penguin says nothing. It isn't until a passing lion intervenes that Penguin finally speaks - and, when he does, Ben discovers that some things are worth the wait. Shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal and the winner of numerous other awards.
