In the middle of the night, a mysterious red truck races down Happy Town. Its cargo? Cages filled with penguins on their way to be shipped to another country. Suddenly the doors fling open and one cage rolls down the street and lands in a garden. From it, a little penguin steps out fearfully, awed at the world around him. Up until now, he has only known the constraints of the zoo.

In the morning, a boy named Alesdor discovers him and decides to keep him. Naturally, they immediately click and become the best of friends. Though the little penguin, Zeppi, is heartbroken from being separated from the rest of his family, he finds warmth and affection in Alesdor, who is as anxious for a friend as his new companion.

This children's book by first-time Belgian author C.K. Omillin put a smile on my face throughout; not only because it's about a penguin (and who doesn't love penguins?), but because the story is sweet and weaves elements of friendship, family and ecological, planet-friendly values. This is the first instalment in The Adventures of Zeppi series and the beginning of their escapades. The adorable illustrations in soft pastel colors complement the story perfectly. This isn't the standard picture book for 3-7 year olds that has short text and includes artwork on almost every page, but rather a picture book for slighter older kids (ages 6-9), who can handle longer stories. Still, there are 13 illustrations in this book, many of them spot illustrations.

I'm really looking forward to reading the next book in the series. The Adventures of Zeppi is sure to become a favourite of children, especially those who love penguins. C.K. Omillin is definitely an author to keep your eye on.

My five year old was a bit concerned at the beginning when Zeppi the penguin fell out of the truck but he was quickly caught up in the exciting adventures of this wonderful little penguin. Now he has asked for all the books! I love them too, with their environmental ecological tips snuck into the stories. And the illustrations are beautiful. These are detailed, high quality, well written stories that adults will enjoy reading to/with their kids. The Adventures of Zeppi - A Penguin Story - #1 New Friends by C.K. Omillin is great children's book anyone will love. I can't recommend this enough. 5 stars!

This is an endearing book that parents can read to their toddlers at bedtime. It is a simple story with lovely pictures - just perfect for engaging young minds - and it portrays a world that will surely spark your children's imagination. As with any good children's book, as simple as the story is, it can be read and re-read without fear of boring your little one. Isn't that the kind of book that every parent wants?

If you have a toddler who enjoys having a bedtime story read to them, then you cannot go far wrong with this little gem.
