Summary

A 2013 Caldecott Honor Book

Award-winning author Toni Buzzeo's stories deliver engaging characters and gentle humor, helping to set young listeners on a path toward a lifetime of reading enjoyment. In One Cool Friend, Elliot spots his ideal pet on a visit to the aquarium-a penguin! Polite and proper, Elliot is sure that if he asks his father nicely, a dapper Antarctic bird will soon be in his care. But after Elliot's father agrees to his request, hijinks ensue as one misunderstanding leads to another until the story's surprising finale.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The book’s humor is built on gentle misunderstandings between father and son (when Elliot asks for a penguin, his father assumes he means a stuffed one from the aquarium gift shop)…The revelation that they’re not so dissimilar after all is about as sweet as it gets.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
