In this enchanting story, Penguin Small is the last remaining North Pole penguin, and all because he is afraid of swimming. The bad-tempered polar bears unwittingly start Penguin Small and his friend the snowman, on a magical journey across the world's oceans.
The illustrations on the foldout pages are fabulous and bring this delightful story to life. If you like a story with a happy ending, you will love Penguin Small!
