Did you enjoy the book Where’d You Go Bernadette by Maria Semple? If the answer is ‘yes’, you will most certainly enjoy How the Penguins Saved Veronica by Hazel Prior. And if you hated Bernadette? You’re going to want to pass on this book, because it’s VERY similar. Prior’s book is an easy, light read that made me feel warm and fuzzy all over. Our protagonist Veronica is a crabby old woman that will make you laugh, but I also admired her penchant for expensive handbags. The penguins are super cute too.
