Trouble jumps in when his fuzz flies off in clumps and floats on the wind like butterflies. His mother agrees to knit him a sweater, but will that solve the problem? The sweater is just too small. What's he to do? Finally, his mother leads him to a mirror-like piece of ice, where a happy surprise awaits. He's all grown up, and again the handsomest penguin in the frozen south.
