Description

Edna the penguin knows only the three colors that surround her: white ice, black night, and blue sea. But she is convinced there is something more out there. So she sets out on a quest...a quest for color. When she finally finds what she's been looking for, it is everything she hoped for and more. But that doesn't mean she will ever stop looking.

From Publishers Weekly

Dec 01, 2008 – Edna the penguin yearns for something more stimulating than a minimalist horizon. The endless white of snow and ice, the black of the night sky and the Blue, blue, blue. Forever of the sky and ocean only increase her ennui. Readers know alternatives exist because a sunset-orange seaplane goes by when Edna s back is turned; brilliant green and orange endpapers, too, contrast with the limited palette and blocky compositions. Edna treks over icebergs to a revelatory destination, then brings her brood to meet a friendly human expedition camping in ambulance-orange domes and wearing matching jumpsuits; she proudly waddles home with a souvenir orange rubber glove. Portis (Not a Box) celebrates those who long for art and, with her own playful rendering, she inspires readers to celebrate, too. Ages 4 8.

A penguin story

The first 11 pages are not centered or formatted correctly so I cannot see the words and the pictures are cut in half. It appears this way on my ipad and our newer ipad air, so I don't think it is a generation error. Help to fix or explain what to do, thanks

Cut pages

Some of the pages are cut so the full pics don't even show. But otherwise a cute story.
