The Lovereading4Kids comment
Don’t miss this delightful comedy about penguin travellers and an unexpected friendship. As everyone knows, penguins are always at the South Pole, never the North Pole. Out for a picnic though, the Pilchard-Browns take a wrong turn and end up 12,340 miles away from home. An easy mistake to make says Mr Pilchard-Brown, who was in charge of the map. Fortunately, Mr White a polar bear offers to guide them back, and what an adventure they have together journeying across continents. Jeanne Willis has an enormous gift for comedy and her penguin family are brilliant and original comic creations, happy travellers fully embracing local customs. Illustrator Jarvis gives them an insouciant charm and they are equally at home water-skiing in Sydney harbour and sight-seeing in New York. Gorgeous! ~ Andrea Reece
Poles Apart by Jeanne Willis
Everybody knows that penguins belong at the South Pole and polar bears live at the North Pole - but what would happen if, one day, a family of picnicking penguins accidentally got lost? When the hapless Pilchard-Brown family find themselves at completely the wrong pole, they need Mr White, the friendly polar bear, to guide them all the way home...
