Ben is very frustrated! His exciting new present, a penguin, won't speak to him, no matter what Ben does. Ben tickles Penguin, Ben dances for Penguin, Ben even sends Penguin to Outer Space, but Penguin still says nothing. Penguin is there when Ben needs him, though! Polly Dunbar's adorable illustrations of Ben's efforts at friendship with Penguin show that friendship can be demonstrated in many ways.
