Bedtime Stories for Children Books for Babies and Toddlers Featured Books for 3+ readers

A wonderful adventure for a bold little penguin is beautifully told in Tony Mitton’s elegant and witty rhyming text. Determined to explore the world around him, the little penguin sets off in to the icy and watery landscape. Meeting whales and sea lions is fun but soon the little penguin realises that what he most wants is to be back with his own family. Alison Brown’s illustrations make the frozen landscape of the Antarctic come alive.
