Join a little red Penguin named Pomodoro on his quest to cure boredom and find friendship. This pasta-loving bird may be different from the other penguins thanks to his marinara colored feathers, but that doesn’t mean that he can’t find a new friend.
Pomodoro encounters a bully, but in the end, it is his love of all things pasta that helps him find an unlikely dinner partner!
Fun illustrations and snappy rhyme will surely be a hit with children of all ages.
Pomodoro Penguin Makes a Friend is a rhyming children’s picture book for ages 4-8, perfect as either a bedtime story for younger children or a nice story for an early reader.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Keep writing, keep revising, keep a small group of people around you whose opinions you trust, and write some more.

Inspired by a pair of kitchen timers (one a tomato and the other a penguin), Pomodoro Penguin was born. For me, Pomodoro was a way for me to create smart, fun books for kids – and also introduce an arts education character – the opera gobbler (Pomodoro Penguin goes to Italy) that I had created about 4 years earlier.
