September 2014 Book of the Month An attractive picture book which is also a highly informative information book. It includes lots of fun questions about what a penguin might do if it suddenly turned up in the young reader’s world. How would a penguin swim in a swimming pool? Would a penguin be able to play football? What would a penguin eat if it came to dinner? How would a penguin sleep in a house? The answers are full of surprises all of which are entertainingly illustrated.

From the 'What If A....' series which also includes Could an Octopus Climb a Sky Scraper?
