When Penguin leaves behind the snow and ice for a tropical beach getaway, things don't start off quite the way he'd planned. "Ow!" Penguin learns that you can't ski on sand ..."Ouch!" He learns that you can't sledge on sand, either. And don't even think about skating on sand! But just when he is about to give up and go home, Penguin meets someone very special who reminds him that it's not where you go on holiday, but who you go with. An endearing follow-up to the heart-warming Penguin and Pinecone.
