Get Busy,Dad's Back! by Stephen Waterhouse

When Dad comes through the door of the igloo all the penguin family is delighted to see him. He has been away for a long time. But where exactly? After he has had a big hug, Dad unravels a huge map and explains his journey. He has travelled all over the world and from each country he has visited he has brought back a gift for each of his little penguins and Mum. After the excitement and stories everyone is very tired, so they go to sleep dreaming of their very own adventures. Stephen Waterhouse's endless palette of colour and intricately detailed visual storytelling will provide hours of fun and interest for all budding artists and lovers of travel.
