Planet Peril by Lucy Courtenay


Planet Peril by Lucy Courtenay

What's black and white, and flies faster than the speed of light? The Space Penguins! They're the ice-cool crew of the spaceship Tunafish. With their pioneering flying skills and resistance to the deep freeze, these intergalactic avians are going where no fin has gone before. Captain T Krill, Rocky Waddle, Fuzz Allgrin and Splash Gordon are on a mission to explore new planets, rescue alien life, and battle their former comrade-in-wings: DarkWader. In book five of the Space Penguins series, the penguins accept an invite to take a holiday on a new leisure planet. But little do they realize they're waddling into a trap. Before long they find themselves the number one attraction in the planet's zoo. Can they rescue the zoo's other aliens and break out, or is it a life behind bars for the penguins? A hilarious series, featuring everyone's favourite flightless birds! Packed with out of this world aliens, flipper to the floor penguin action, and daft jokes and puns, these books are perfect for children aged six to eight.
