February Book of the Month
Meet Mr. Penguin – Adventurer (and penguin!)
He has a dashing hat. He has a packed lunch. And he is very keen. So when Boudicca Bones from the Museum calls for help, Mr Penguin springs into action. Can he and Colin the spider find her missing treasure? And what happens when adventuring becomes DANGEROUS?
Mr. Penguin and his side-kick, Colin the spider, are called in to solve a mystery when treasure goes missing from the local museum. It has been weeks since Mr Penguin’s last adventure and he’s been stuck at his desk, twiddling his flippers ever since. That is until the phone rings! Their quest finds them solving secret codes, fighting ferocious beasts, eating fish finger sandwiches and travelling deep below the museum to a lost jungle… An exuberant adventure with lovable, quirky characters; this is the first book in the series. Accompanied throughout by Alex T. Smith’s brilliant illustrations. Great for 7-9 year olds.
