Walrus and Penguin see an opportunity and escape from the zoo. With the zookeeper hot on their trail, these two manage to hide in plain sight. A wordless picture book, Where’s Walrus? And Penguin? engages the youngest readers to follow the story through pictures and search out Walrus and Penguin on each page. Whether they’re in the park, in traffic, at the opera, or at a baseball game, Walrus and Penguin blend into the action. Without words, a picture book becomes all the more about the illustrations. Sadly, these pictures were created digitally in a very simplistic style. The minimalist illustrations don’t enhance the adventure of finding Walrus and Penguin on the page. Reminiscent of Sammy the Seal by Syd Hoff but without the same investment in illustration, Where’s Walrus? And Penguin? falls short as a wordless picture book.
