PENGUINPIG is the new highly-acclaimed story about a little girl who reads of an exciting creature known as a penguinpig on the Internet. Filled with delight and intrigue, she decides that she must go and find one. However, her parents are far too busy to take her to the zoo and so she decides that she will sneak out and find the adorable penguinpig all on her own. Carefully, she follows the instructions from the website - but does she find her delightful penguinpig...?
"Lovely children's book. A must for schools, libraries and families with children." - Claude Littner (BBC's The Apprentice)
"PENGUINPIG is a splendid book. A warning to the world and not just les enfants. Plenty of perzazz and child-appeal too." - Ian Whybrow (Children's Author)
"Fab story. Wowza pics. I want a penguinpig!" - Andy Cope (Children's Author)
An enjoyable book
We downloaded this for our youngest son because it looked quirky and the idea of internet safety was appealing now that he has stared to use the internet more on his own. It’s an amazing book which is full of great pictures and it flows so nicely. The message is clear to children and made us think!
A great concept!
Stuart's words and Amy's pictures combine beautifully.
The message of the importance of eSafety is not lost in this delightfully simple story. I also liked that the message is not only for children but for their parents too.
The author's use of rhyme and rhythm keeps the story flowing and exciting, while the quirky images create something to talk about around and within the story.
A great story for children, families and schools as access to information on the internet becomes more and more independently accessible for smaller children.
