I like penguins. I think they're cute! Until today, though, I thought it was pretty tough to draw a penguin. But today, just an hour ago in fact, I found an adorable, very useful tutorial by children's book author Oliver Jeffers on how to draw a penguin! It's from the Children's Books section on the Guardian website, which is full of interesting things on…you guessed it, children's books. But full of interesting diversions for readers of all ages!

I'll have to wait till this evening to try it out but believe me, the instructions are pretty foolproof. (And I am really, really terrible at drawing so if I'm saying it, you know it's true.)

Each stage of the drawing process is accompanied by Jeffers' wonderfully esoteric instructions in his own handwriting. (Or someone's scrawly handwriting, anyway.) dog food vitamins
