Publisher's Summary

"Welcome to Polar Bear Island. NO OTHERS ALLOWED!" So says Parker, the mayor, eager to keep the island just the way it is. But Kirby, a newly arrived penguin, is shaking things up--much to Parker's dismay. The other polar bears love Kirby and beg Parker to let Kirby (and her family) move in. Will Parker agree . . . and make the island fun for EVERYONE? With its gentle message of inclusivity, this energetic story will delight children.

A meaningful message about inclusivity is shared through a simple, at times silly, story about penguins and their wonky ideas for Sled Beds, Flipper Slippers, and snow cones. While the story is perhaps too basic, it's still a timely book offering lessons on the benefits of having an open mind and learning from others, lessons that are set forth in a storyline children will grasp.
