The Lovereading4Kids comment

Age 7+. A great mystery told through the eyes of Lola and Evie, who are both committed eco-worriers. Well-written but also full of fascinating eco-facts to ensure the reader cannot fail to realise the key message of the book – unless we start looking after our planet we and many species like penguins will not survive. Another title in this series aimed at 7-9 year olds primarily is Tree Trouble.

Synopsis

Penguin Problems by Kathryn Lamb

Lucy and her friend Evie look out of the window one day and see a small, fluffy snowman - in the middle of summer! On closer inspection, they realise it's a baby penguin. This seems to confirm the eco-minded girls' worst fears about global warming - the ice-caps have melted and the penguins are being forced into new lands.
