Penguins Skim Across the Pond

I showed a patron yesterday a copy of Mr. Popper's Penguins for the very first time. She was unfamiliar with the title, having never heard of it before. To sweeten the deal I told her that penguins were very "in" right now. You've your Happy Feet. Your March of the Penguins (not to be confused with March of the Emperor, of course). And now Silo and Roy, of And Tango Makes Three fame, are appearing on English bookseller's shelves for the very first time. The Guardian has the skinny in their piece, March of the penguin protesters.

Oh. And Melvin Burgess is quoted. Because he... gets banned a lot? No idea.

Thanks to Big A little a for the link.
