Paulette Bogan, "Virgil and Owen"

Every great friendship started somewhere, but here's a story of how not to make friends…

When Virgil the penguin finds a lost polar bear, Owen, he wants Owen all to himself. He will be the only penguin with a polar bear as a best friend! But this Owen plays with everyone else on the iceberg! Isn't Owen supposed to be Virgil's friend and Virgil's friend only?


With a gentle twist on this classic childhood dilemma, Paulette Bogan introduces a new charming and lovable duo to readers.


Paulette Bogan had her first "artistic experience” during a family outbreak of chicken pox. Paulette's mother encouraged her to paint a mural on the playroom wall!

For Paulette this was the start of her artistic career. Now Paulette is the author and illustrator of many beloved books for children including Spike, Goodnight Lulu, Lulu the Big Little Chick, Chicks and Salsa, and Buffalo Wings (the last two written by Aaron Reynolds) Lulu the Big Little Chick won the Children's Choice Book Award in May of 2010 for Kindergarten to Second Grade Book of the Year. Chicks and Salsa is featured on the PBS Children's Show, Between the Lions! Many of her stories are inspired by her three delightful daughters, and some of them by her dogs.
