Sometimes, a simple wish to share time with friends is the best Christmas present one can receive.
Penguin is back for another adventure in the North Pole. His friend, Pumpkin, is sad because pine trees
cannot grow there, and he is hoping for a Christmas tree. Penguin has an idea; he 
gathers decorations and
friends as he leads them to a forest. A windstorm threatens to blow away 
the spirit of Christmas, but the
magic of the season has a surprise in store for Penguin. The 
story is told in simple third person with large,
easy to read text. The bright, bold, colorful 
illustrations pop with appeal, especially the unique aerial views.
The Christmas spirit is alive 
and well without any hint of commercialization or complication in the plot.
