Penelope's Pearls is a seemingly simple story about the transformative power of love and understanding to make us feel whole. Penelope is a very little penguin who can't get used to the cold. One day, she drifts away from home on an ice floe, where she meets another little penguin named Pablo. The magic and beauty she finds through her new friend, opens her imagination and warms her heart. The story is accompanied by unique paper cut-out illustrations, whose clean modern lines reflect the spare snowy landscape, to please the innocent eyes of children, as well as their parents.
