Sometimes all you need is a good friend to help you be brave.
Ella has a surprise for Penguin—glow-in-the-dark stickers! But to see the stickers glow, Ella and Penguin must be in the dark. And the dark is so . . . dark! If only they could see the stickers glow in the light—but that won’t work. Soon Ella and Penguin find out that if they stick together, they can face anything.
Megan Maynor’s sweet and lively text, paired with Rosalinde Bonnet’s irresistible illustrations, will have readers clamoring for more Ella and Penguin.
The sandcastles that Megan Maynor built were mostly on lakeshores, because she is a Minnesota girl herself. These days, she mostly builds stories to share with children. Megan is also the author of <i>Ella and Penguin Stick Together</i> and <i>Ella and Penguin, A Perfect Match</i>. She lives outside Minneapolis with one husband, three kids, and one rabbit.

As a child, Rosalinde could not decide whether she wanted to be a wildlife biologist, a writer or an illustrator. But, because she spent most of her time doodling (even all over her notebooks during class!) or creating plays and sets for her puppets, she finally decided to study art after high school.
She went first to the Versailles School of Fine Arts (2 years), then to the Académie Charpentier in Paris (1 year), and lastly she joined the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs (4 years).
Since then, Rosalinde has written and/or illustrated numerous books like Daddy Honk Honk!, Poppy’s Best Babies, Poppy’s Best Paper, Ella and Penguin series, and Zip! Zoom! On a Broom.
When she isn’t working or reading in her studio near Paris, Rosalinde likes hiking in wild places, taking photos, and making vegan pastries.
