This is it: Baby Penguins Everywhere! is officially published. As in, it's on real bookstore shelves across the US -- and Canada, eh!

Whether you buy a copy from your friendly local bookshop or borrow one from your library, I hope you'll share it with the little penguins in your life. If you don't have penguins, share it with your kids!

xo, Melissa

p.s. Remember to request your free signed bookplate!

many little penguins
