Penguin Synopsis

A perfect penguin present brought to life with an animated DVD! Ben is delighted when he rips open his present and finds a penguin inside. Hello, Penguin! he says. Penguin says nothing. Can't you talk? says Ben. Penguin says nothing. It isn't until a passing lion intervenes that Penguin finally speaks ... and when he does, Ben discovers something that was really worth waiting for. Offering a whole new storytelling experience this picture book and DVD edition features a charming story animation, narrated by Emilia Fox (Silent Witness, Rebecca).

Penguin Press Reviews

Children's books about penguins are ten-a-penny. This, however, is a really good one, with a natty twist at the end. * Independent *
