Fans of Babymouse and Owly will love this early graphic novel series about the everyday adventures and high jinks of Reginald “Reggie” Guinn, a little kid penguin with a big personality!
Reggie is just like any other kid: always looking for fun and adventure! But Reggie’s curious, playful side sometimes gets him into trouble. Like when he tries to give himself a haircut before picture day…and ends up gluing his feathers back on his head! Or when he sneaks a mouthful of cookie dough from the kitchen…then feels the sun baking cookies in his tummy! Or when his babysitter puts him on a kid leash while they walk to the park…and he rebels by acting like a dog!

Reggie: Kid Penguin is a collection of six silly stories that explore kid-friendly themes, all through the eyes of a lovable, spunky penguin.

  • Junior Library Guild Selection

    “A wacky and weirdly wise series of scenarios solved with comical kid logic.”
  • “[Reggie] traverses through the short stories in this graphic collection with all the wiseacre personality and flailing energy of Mo Willems’s Pigeon.… A rib-tickling title that will give the younger elementary set a character to call their own from the graphic novel shelves.”
    School Library Journal
  • "A comic that’s easy to read but that also shows a keen attunement to kids’ interests and thought processes."
