Celestine and the Penguins by Penny Ives

Re-released in paperback, this title features confident little duck heroine, Celestine, who is bored of waiting for the snow to arrive one winter. She decides to make her own, but cotton wool and paper just aren't the same. As she trudges back to her house, who should be behind her but a host of baby penguins, set adrift from Antarctica! After attempts to recreate the chill of the South Pole fail, it's up to Celestine to find a way to send the penguins home.
