      A Margret Rey book originally created in 1937 when "Hans Rey was working in the Brazilian Pavilion at the Paris World's Fair. He was stationed across from the penguin exhibit and he took great delight in drawing these fanciful creatures and creating characters out of them. Eventually, he and Margret drafted the entire saga of Whiteblack the Penguin; later they strapped it onto a bicycle and fled Paris." A superb example of H. A. Rey's early work, the book has been executed in his French watercol [...]

      Personal reflection – This is a fun little story about a penguin named, Whiteblack, that has run out of stories to tell. This is a problem because he’s a well-known storyteller for a radio station that broadcasts all over Penguinland. Whiteblack decides to build a boat and travel the world to collect stories from abroad. Little does he know, the stories he will collect will be his own and not of those from others. Children will find this book quite humorous. Purpose – 1st-2nd grade read al [...]

      My love of reading started when i was young, and it gives me immense pleasure to provide books to Spread the Word Nevada, an organization that passes them on to children in the community. They are a terrific organization supporting an important cause. If your local I encourage you to check them out. For those living further a field, look in your own community, their may already be a similar program in place. And if not, you can always help start one.spreadthewordnevada/Myself, I go out on the we [...]

      Whiteblack the penguin is running out of stories to tell on his radio show - not a good thing to happen to the Chief Storyteller of Penguinland. Waving goodbye to his friends, Whiteblack sets off in a little boat, in search of new stories.

      I liked this book, I thought it was a cute story about a penguin who sets out to explore the world, but in the end finds out there's nothing better than being at home with the people you love. This book has important themes for kids including the importance of putting yourself out there and taking risks, but also appreciating what you have and the people you have around you. The illustrations in this book are also really great, with a lot of color and detail.I recommend this book to any child lo [...]

      Sweet and funny story in this new-to-me book by the Reys. Apparently this sat in their files for 60 years and was only found after Margaret Rey's death in 1998. Whiteblack has run out of material for his radio show on WONS (snow backwards), so he decides to travel to collect stories, and boy does he collect some whoppers! From being accidentally shot out of a cannon to getting sea sick on a camel, Whiteblack sees the world and comes home full of interesting anecdotes. And a netfull of fish for h [...]

      If you or your child is a fan of the writings of Curious George this is written by the same author and she does a good job at the story. Whiteblack the penguin tells stories to the other artic animals but he's soon out of stories to tell them so he wants to head out to find more stories. And he does he finds himself on a boat being shot out of a cannon, he finds himself on the hot desert being helped by a camel, on the top of an airplane 'finally being able to fly' and finally back home with gif [...]

      Whiteblack the Penguin is a cute book. Whiteblack decides to go see the world and his friends, who are a polar bear and a seal say that he will need a boat. So he builds a boat with help from his family. His friends tell him to bring back presents (souvenirs) too. He promises he will and sets off. It’s a cute book as you read about all the places Whiteblack travels in the world, and how he makes it back home and they have a huge artic party. 2014-Summer-Reading-Review

      Davey's rating is a definite 5 stars. We've read it two nights in a row now, and this morning he was "reading" it by himself. This story really appealed to him. It is written by H.A. Rey (and Margret), the authors of Curious George. (The Man in the Yellow Hat makes a cameo appearance in this book.) It is a cute book about Whiteblack's adventures.

    14. Karen on said:

      I'm afraid I got hung up on the part early in the book when a seal gave Whiteblack the penguin half of a seal skin to make a boat. After that, I found much of the story distasteful, so distasteful that even the otherwise charming illustrations could not win me over. I realize that this book was written in a different era, but instead of feeling timeless, it feels very dated.

    15. Mary Crytzer on said:

      A lighthearted story about a penguin who travels the word looking for new stories to tell. I liked that Whiteblack never became upset when things didn't go quite the way he wanted, a good lesson for children and adults. The illustrations added so much to the story. Very bright and cheery.

    16. Kelly on said:

      I really liked this one. The kids I read it too were engrossed, too, and they made lots of comments while reading it. It was a good balance of repetition and not, and the picture were helpful to the story, too.

    17. Sandra Stiles on said:

      Whiteblack tells stories on W.O.N.S. radio station. One day he runs out of stories and leaves to see the world to collect new stories. When he returns he brings a gift and is named the hero.

    18. Meg on said:

      I love Rey's illustrations. Whiteblack is a fun protagonist with a great attitude through all his adventures, even when things go wrong. This is another light-hearted adventure story J and I love.

    19. Dolly on said:

      Such a strange little story that was very factually inaccurate, but still somewhat charming. The publisher's note at the end of the story really brought the story to life for us.

    20. ↜ƈɦǟռ☂ɛℓℓɛ↝ on said:

      What kind of stories can he find around the world, will he ever have new ones for his radio show?

    21. Robin on said:

      An optimistic penguin has adventures. Look closely for characters and illustration similarities to other Rey books.
