Penguins consider as their homelands south polar regions:
Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s (February 25, 1841 – December 3, 1919) namesake does him proud with Girl with a Watering Can wall art until the family house gets sold and her father opens North Pole-based offices.
Augustine’s father engages Emperor King Movers to transport furnishings and possessions and Penguin Air to transport family and suitcases. He gets hotel rooms while checking eight houses for sale and purchasing the ninth because of:
• Augustine’s tower room;
• castle-like exteriors;
• hard ice floors; and
• icicle chandeliers.
Augustine has frosty flakes for breakfast and icy fresh toothpaste for hygiene before back-packing apple juice, sandwiches, and sprinkle-iced cupcakes for school.
Loneliness inspires Augustine’s adapting Pablo Picasso’s (October 25, 1881 – April 8, 1973) Self-portrait in Blue Period.
