I spotted this book on Twitter and when I saw it up on Netgalley I just had to click that request button! I just love penguins and I was curious to read about their adventures in the aquarium.
In this adorable book we meet Edward and Annie, two adorable penguins who are about to go on a wonderful adventure! They are allowed to walk through the aquarium and see all the animals and all the other fun things! I just loved seeing them explore the aquarium and meet the inhabitants, from a turtle to otters to fish. I will never be able to visit this aquarium (no plans to go to the US/that particular part) so I am delighted that through this book I can still visit in a way. See the animals, see the beautiful places they are staying in. I was just as excited as our two penguins! OMG, look at how pretty that is! Look what is there? I found it very sweet of their carer to take them out and have a fun time! I wonder if they also did that for the other penguins or if these two are trained/special. The blurb mention these are viral sensations?? So maybe just them? I would just let all the penguins have a fun moment. XD
People who read my reviews know that I am very much against Corona in books, hello we are still living partially in it and we had a hell of a 2 years, so no thank you. But I didn’t mind it that much in this one. It wasn’t specifically mentioned, just that the penguins were wondering where the humans were and that their trainer/carer said something that he hoped that people would be back soon. That is all, and I can live with that as I can spin it into something else than COVID. Like that the Aquarium was just closed for renovations or something. XD
The art was just so cute! I really love the style and loved how it was both cute and realistic!
All in all, this was just so adorable and fun and I hope that Annie and Edward have made many more adventures in the aquarium~ I will definitely be searching the internet to see if there are any pictures/videos anywhere!
