The Lovereading4Kids comment

Touching and informative, Perky little Penguins takes us to an snowy ice-capped heaven with lots of waddling black and white friends to swim, dive, jump around and play with. The illustrations by Guy Parker-Rees can’t help but bring a smile while Tony Mitton’s narrative is entirely in verse, which makes the story almost singable!

About the Author

Tony Mitton

Tony Mitton was born in 1951 in North Africa, the son of a soldier. Until he was 9 he lived mostly in Africa, Germany and Hong Kong. He went to state boarding school in Suffolk and went on to do an English Literature degree at Cambridge University. He then trained to be an English teacher before making the switch to primary school teaching.

Tony worked as a primary school teacher between the ages of 25 to 49, but for the last 13 years of that period he taught part-time. During that period he began to spend 2 or 3 days a week working at his writing, and wrote poems and stories for school reading books and also for trade market books. He now writes full-time and visits lots of schools, libraries and events to talk about his work.

He lives in a small house in the middle of Cambridge with his wife and two children, and a cat called Tiggy, who is definitely one of the family. Tony likes Cambridge but he and his wife often wish they'd settled somewhere where there are better places for walking, like cliffs and hills with good views of the landscape.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
