Flora and the Penguin by Molly Idle

Molly Idle is the author and illustrator of the Caldecott Honor-winning picture book Flora and the Flamingo (and the rest of the Flora books too). She’s also the creator of the Rex series (which includes Tea Rex and Sea Rex) and the mermaid tales Pearl and Coral. Prior to pursuing a career in picture books, Idle worked as an artist for DreamWorks Animation studios in California but has since set up shop in the sunny state of Arizona, where she works and lives with her marvelous, multigenerational family that includes her brilliant husband, two mercurial sons, two remarkable parents, two snugly cats, and an inseparable pair of lovebirds.
