“The Many Adventures of Pengey Penguin” is about a penguin names Pengey who goes on adventures to find his mother and father who disappeared. His mother disappeared when it was the mom’s turn to go fish hunting; the other penguin moms came back but Pengey’s mom did not. Then, the dad had to go get food and he didn’t return. Pengey went out to find them.
On the way to find his parents, he ran into a human named Wendy. Pengey and Wendy became friends. Wendy had to leave for Rio de Janeiro and left Pengey. Pengey wanted to go with her so he hid in the airplane’s wheel compartment.
“The Many Adventures of Pengey Penguin” by John Burns is good for everyone who likes adventures. I love adventure stories and this was a great one!
