Time for a special book that was crucial in keeping myself going back in the dark days of late 2018. This is Loading Penguin Hugs, published by Andrews McMeel Publishing and created by Jacqueline Chen – better known as the one-and-only Chibird, the artist behind the Internet famous 'motivational penguin' illustrations.
The book is exactly what you'd expect from Chibird – a compilation of new motivational and uplifting little comic strips starring adorable critters – both penguin and not. And yes, the book works, it is almost impossible to go through it without breaking into a smile.
So yeah, if you're a Chibird fan or need something to give you smiles, go grab yourself a copy via the book-store-of-your-choice. The only reason I haven't featured this one until now is simple; it's been at hand since it was released and I've come so accustomed to browsing it that I completely forgot that I hadn't featured it yet!
Sorry about that, time to load up the penguin hugs!
