Reggie the kid penguin returns with his trademark spunk and energy for more daily adventures…but they rarely go according to plan in this hilarious early reader graphic novel series.

Around the neighborhood, Reggie is up to his regular shenanigans. But it seems like everything he does causes a mess! When he's building a toy robot, parts fly everywhere. When he's blowing bubbles, the suds make his flippers all slimy. And let's not even get started on what happens at the local pet talent show!

Reggie has a knack for causing a scene, but can this penguin use his creative energy to problem solve and learn what it means to take charge? 

Reggie: Penguin in Charge is a collection of six giggle-worthy comics that tell playful and relatable stories for fun-loving kids.



  • “Whimsical, heartwarming, and educational, Reggie has it all! Like every one of us, Reggie gets frustrated, makes mistakes, gets overwhelmed, and even cries. And that’s okay! He doesn’t let it stop him from caring, exploring, dreaming, and laughing.”
    Andy Runton, creator of the award-winning Owly series
  • “Reggie is clever, quirky, oh-so-relatable and absolutely hilarious. He’s the childhood bestie we all wish we’d had.”
    Katherine Battersby, author of the Cranky Chicken series
  • Praise for Reggie: Kid Penguin

    Junior Library Guild Selection

    “A wacky and weirdly wise series of scenarios solved with comical kid logic.” —Kirkus

    “[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
  • "Affectionately encapsulates the creative energy and challenges of childhood."
    Kirkus Reviews
