Books We Love: “Penguin’s Hidden Talent” and “The Boy Who Cried Ninja”
My daughter and I are already familiar with the very talented author/illustrator Alex Latimer from his first picture book, The Boy Who Cried Ninja, a witty updating of Aesop’s boy who cried “wolf.” His new book (available for pre-order), Penguin's Hidden Talent is another winner.
My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed these books. They’re witty, fresh, and the illustrations are funny yet sweet. They’re seemingly simple yet filled with personality, like the stories themselves.
