This is the story of Ben, who couldn't be more delighted to find a penguin friend inside his present. Hello, Penguin! he says. Penguin says nothing. Ben tickles Penguin, pulls his funniest face, puts on a happy hat, sings a silly song and does a dizzy dance ... but still Penguin says nothing. It isn't until a passing lion intervenes that Penguin finally speaks - and, when he does, Ben discovers that some things are worth the wait.
