Flora returns with an icy adventure and a new friend - a penguin. This wordless journey into the give and take of friendship will leave you cheering for its happy ending. Gorgeous illustrations and revealing flaps allow the reader to interpret the story. — Northshire Staff


Having mastered ballet in Flora and the Flamingo, Flora takes to the ice and forms an unexpected friendship with a penguin. Twirling, leaping, spinning, and gliding, on skates and flippers, the duo mirror each other's graceful dance above and below the ice. But when Flora gives the penguin the cold shoulder, the pair must figure out a way to work together for uplifting results. Artist Molly Idle creates an innovative, wordless picture book with clever flaps that reveal Flora and the penguin coming together, spiraling apart, and coming back together as only true friends do.

For more feathery fun, pick up Flora and the Flamingo, Flora and the Peacocks, Flora and Friends Matching Game or, coming soon, Flora and the Chicks.
