Penguin In Peril
by Helen Hancocks
You know how some films are categorised as ‘chase movies’? Well, this one’s a ‘chase book’ – if that term exists – and it’s hilariously funny with it. Three cheeky cats set out to buy some fish, but a detour to the cinema gives them another idea – why not capture a penguin instead, who can catch enough fish for a feast? The delightful thing about this book is how Hancocks allows her illustrations to tell the story, as the chase that ensues takes us through the Underground, a restaurant kitchen and a sewage system. Can the penguin escape his peril? Read it to find out.
