LoveReading View on The Penguin Who Wanted to Find out

The many dangers that beset a baby penguin are well-captured in this touching story about Otto, the penguin chick. Otto needs to take care to survive the risk of predators and the dangers from the terrible weather that he is born into. Luckily, there are many other penguins around who can help him both to learn and to survive in this touching story about being young and curious. ~ Julia Eccleshare

The Penguin Who Wanted to Find out Synopsis

Otto is a penguin chick, that much he knows, but other than this he has a lot to learn. Life at the bottom of the world is a curious thing and life can change at a moment's notice. The next blizzard, the next meal and the threat of being orphaned are all challenges that must be faced. But how will Otto and his friends manage? The only way that penguins can do - by looking after each other. A perfect story for animal lovers young and old, filled with tenderness and love combined with a subtle humour.

Jill Tomlinson's animal stories have been enjoyed by children who want to snuggle down with a good read for decades. This edition of The Penguin Who Wanted to Find Out is beautifully illustrated by Paul Howard.

About Jill Tomlinson

Jill Tomlinson never intended to be a writer.  She trained as an opera singer, and then decided to have a family whilst her voice matured.  But illness intervened, and she had to find another outlet for her energies.  She started on a journalism course, and by the third lesson decided she wanted to write for children.  So she did! It did not come easily.  Her first story, The Bus who went to Church, was rejected by sixteen publishers before it was accepted for a picture book.  Several other picture books followed until she felt ...
