Written with great wit and tremendous energy by Nichola McAuliffe, this unput-downable book is a brilliant first reader for all children who want a great story with lots of adventure. In this charming and quirky book Nichola has made the humble penguin a figure of huge courage and stamina. The perfect hero.
