The Emperor and I by mato, Chapters 1-6

This is totally going to be my lunchtime reading today. It's strangely soothing.


Some notes:


- I love that Emperor is just sort of there, this hulking bird that has decided to live with them.


- I love Dad. He comes in at Chapter 5, I think, and is initially stunned at the appearance of a penguin in his home while he was away on a business trip. He adjusts quickly.


- Chapter 6 has a cat! And mato is just as good at drawing cats as penguins.


- I wish tapping on the left side of the screen turned the page (I'm reading on my phone). It looks like only swiping works, though.
