Loading Penguin Hugs

Author: Jessica Chen
Released: November 13th 2018
Received: NetGalley
Rating: 4 kitties

I received a copy of Loading Penguin Hugs through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Loading Penguin Hugs has got to be one of the cutest books I’ve read in quite some time. The whole book is full of single page comics and words of encouragement, but it’s all just so happy and cheerful. It’s impossible not to smile while reading.

You may recognize the style and name of the comic, Chibird. This is the same one we all know and love from the internet, however the publisher promised that the book is full of all new comics. So if you think you’ve seen them all, guess again! Plus I’ve been told that the physical copy comes with stickers, which sounds amazing.

Jessica Chen has been behind Chibird for years, actively seeking to help bring cheer and joy to others. It’s hard not to appreciate and respect that goal of hers. It’s not every day you see somebody that caring or wholesome.

I really enjoyed reading Loading Penguin Hugs. Many of the pages made me smile, some made me laugh, and others gave me a wistful sensation. Regardless of which emotion they made me feel at the time, the overall feeling was a positive one. Honestly, I think it would do a lot of us some good to see a different one of these images every day (note to self: check and see if there’s a 365 calendar of Chibird comics).


About Liz (AKA Cat)

I am an avid animal lover, photographer, graphic designer, and much more. I love to create art, and am willing to try any artistic technique at least once. I am particularly fond of artworks involving a lot of emotion and color. The purpose of my blog is for me to be open and honest with myself and the world about my attempts to grow as an artist. My other major passion is reading. My TBR pile is larger than I'll ever be able to read, and yet I can't resist adding to it on a nearly daily basis. I love to read science fiction & fantasy, graphic novels, and pretty much anything I can get my hands on. I have a couple of blogs, as you can see. One is primarily my photography, while the other are my book reviews. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out!
