Mr. Staccato
Spent many carefree hours hunting clues with the Hardy boys and defending Redwall Abbey.

“When you give love, it grows.” Such a cute board book with a fun story and illustrations that fully add to it. When penguin discovers a pinecone he’s not exactly sure what it is. His grandpa tells him that pinecones belong in the forest and so after making a scarf for his new friend, penguin makes the long journey to take his pinecone somewhere warmer.
