A thrilling zoo adventure takes place in this wittily written and illustrated first reader. Will the Penguins in the City Zoo be able to find the missing baby penguins? Who will help them? Young readers will love this fast-paced drama with its cast of zoo animals, some helpful and some not, as the delightful rescue mission unfolds.


Penguin Pandemonium - The Rescue by Jeanne Willis

Two baby penguins are missing and the rest of the City Zoo penguins set out across the zoo on a daring rescue mission. They hang with the monkeys, fish for clues in the aquarium and try not to get spotted by the leopard in a fast-paced adventure full of fun.

This is the second hilarious story about the irrepressible penguins of City Zoo, from award-winning author Jeanne Willis. One of the fantastic titles in the Awesome Animals series -- the funniest fiction, starring the wildest wildlife, from prize winning authors.
