The Lovereading4Kids comment

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.

Could a Penguin could ride a bike? provides a fun and informative introduction into the life of a penguin. By imagining animals in everyday scenarios, readers can learn about their size, diet and other features. For example, a penguin chick eats 200 fish a day - so imagine having one round for dinner! Featuring superb illustrations and an engaging question and answer format, this title is extremely engaging and enjoybale. Could A Penguin Ride A Bike will be sure to keep young readers entertained whilst also helping them to understand and retain animal facts.

Following on from the popular What if a Dino series, QED is publishing four new titles on ocean animals:

Could a Shark do Gymnastics?

Could a Whale Swim to the Moon?

Could a Penguin Ride a Bike?

Could an Octopus Climb a Skyscraper?


It's a super approach and children will learn plenty about all the wonderful things penguins can do. The lively presentation, with text that weaves through the pages and lots of amusing pictures, will engage children. Parents in Touch
