Pip is a plucky baby penguin who spends her days sailing down snowy banks, snacking on fish, and being cuddled by her parents, who sing the same song each night: “Our home is where the land is free from hill or mountain, twig or tree, in our pebbly nest by the stormy sea, where Mama and Papa and Pip make three.” Yes, there are shades of And Tango Makes Three (2005), but Wilson’s story finds originality in how it ultimately handles the concept of home. Innocently chasing after a feather, Pip finds herself suddenly lost. “Where is home?” she asks a blue whale, a bird, and a sled dog; but the home each animal describes is far different than Pip’s beloved snowy tundra. When Pip’s folks finally waddle their way back into her life, they sing a new song that establishes that people, not places, make a home. Young readers will quickly identify with Pip’s separation anxiety and enjoy the happy ending. Preschool-Grade 2. --Daniel Kraus
