Peter the Penguin Pioneer

Written by Daren King

Illustrated by David Roberts

Peter the Penguin Pioneer Synopsis

This book is for penguins only. If you're not a penguin, stop reading now or I'll slap you with my flippers!' Fresh from a jungle trip, Peter, his exuberant assistant Punky and their friend Harold discover their beloved ice-skating rink has been over-populated with some dubious-looking penguins. Determined to weasel them out and return their rink to its former glory, Peter and Punky embark on an adventure involving flying fish, silly snowmen, angry polar bears and a bunch of very sneaky squirrels.
