While his father tries to keep his cup/mug business going in the next village, his son Pucca, a young penguin, stumbles on a creative solution while playing with clay.  He makes figures of his friends and turns them into cups, which become a big success with all the animals in the village.  When his Father returns home he is surprised, pleased and proud of his son.  This book is compelling.  The illustrations are charming, inspiring and readers will want to linger over them.  This book is sure to be a story time pleaser, and offers a fun question at the end which will spark conversation.
