The Penguin Who Wanted to Find Out
By (author) Jill Tomlinson; Illustrated by Paul Howard
A heart-warming classic of a picture book full of animal antics by Jill Tomlinson. 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.
Jill Tomlinson’s animal stories are much-loved and have been best-selling for the last three decades. Her tales, written in the face of extreme adversity during her battle against multiple sclerosis, nevertheless maintain the humour and affection for which she has become renowned. Paul Howard is a very successful illustrator whose illustrations for the picture book of The Owl Who was Afraid of the Dark have been widely acclaimed. Paul lives in Belfast with his wife and three children.
