About the Author
Jill Tomlinson Jill Tomlinson never intended to be a writer. 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.

The book doesn't have tonnes of pictures, but it is a lovely story for children and can be read over a few evenings if need be. It is about a penguin chick who grows up and learns about the world he lives in and what it means to be an emperor penguin. It is gentle and well written and the audio version is nicely read.
Please note, this book used to be called "Penguin's Progress"
Finally, as important as it is that it keeps the children entertained, it is just as charming for adults - crucial if listening to it for the umpteenth time!
