Paperboard bound books, designedfor the youngest readers: to read, to look at and to discover a fabulous picture which unfolds page to page, creating a book which seems endless. 

Lots and lots and lots 


With the amusing yet poetic language that only he is capable of, the great Gek Tessaro tells the funny story of a day in the life of an enormous, unusual and incredibly crowded family: that of a mother penguin and her hundred little ones...
The short rhyming text goes together with the beautiful rich illustrations that unfold as though they were a single picture, stretching over the whole 16 pages of a book that is almost 2 metres long.
The funny adventures told in the story follow on one after another, leading us through pages that are full of life, laughter, colour, and that are happy, crowded and busy... just like Mother Penguin’s day.

<<You can see there are lots, so you ask yourself but how did their mother do it... or am I going nuts?
The reason there are so many is one simple fact; she laid a hundred eggs, it’s as easy as that.
If she’d had thousands, counting would have been tough if she’d had three, well, that’s less than enough.
Anyway today a fine trip has been planned all over our world, our wonderful land
Playing in the wind you can get quite a fright we’re bigger than yesterday, but we’re still pretty light>>


<<But now it’s the evening and the flag comes to rest I don’t trust the dark so we all go back to the nest.
It mightn’t seem much but counting them is no game and I don’t know how but I remember each name.

I can’t find the right words to say I’d feel lonely if just one went away and when I go to sleep, the last thing I recall is thinking to myself how much I love them all.>>
