Synopsis

Penguin in Peril by Helen Hancocks

With bare cupboards and hungry bellies, three cats formulate a brilliant plan to steal a penguin to catch fish for them. A hilarious sequence of events unfolds as the penguin makes his escape from his feline foes, becoming mistaken for a nun and a waiter, before finding his way safely home to his aquarium. Meanwhile, the cats are caught for their crime and are sent to jail - for a lifetime of gruel. Deftly told and beautifully illustrated, this amusing tale will have little ones and grown-ups giggling from beginning to end.
