The Penguin Who Wanted to Find out Paperback

Illustrated by Paul Howard

Part of the Jill Tomlinson's Favourite Animal Tales series


A heart-warming classic full of animal antics from the author of The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark. 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. Filled with gentle humour and comfort, Jill Tomlinson's animal stories have been enjoyed by children who want to snuggle down with a good read for decades.

Perfect for kids aged 5+ who love Julia Donaldson, and Dick King Smith's The Sheep Pig.

This edition is beautifully illustrated by Paul Howard.

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! Jill Tomlinson's animal stories are much-loved and have been best-selling children's books for nearly four decades.
