Janet Perlman gives readers another penguin-populated fairy tale in The Penguin and the Pea. In a land where even the horses are just four-legged (web-footed) penguins, a blond prince and his family seek the perfect mate. When a bedraggled penguin claiming to be a princess steals the prince's affections, the Queen must know if she is truly royal-using a cabbage (rather than a pea) as the test. Perlman's visual details inject plenty of additional humor. .
