See Penguins Wearing Tiny “Penguin Books” Sweaters, Knitted by the Oldest Man in Australia

in Books, Random | February 12th, 2015


How does 109-year-old Alfred “Alfie” Date keep himself busy? Apparently by knitting sweaters for endangered penguins. The oldest man in Australia, Alfie began knitting these little sweaters at the request of The Penguin Foundation in 2013, after hundreds of Little Penguins were injured by a big oil spill. He makes the sweaters in different styles. But you can’t beat a penguin wearing a Penguin Books logo. We dare you to try.

    Not entirely true, even though it’s entirely adorable.
