The Long Way Home

Fly Like a Penguin, Volume 1

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Welcome to the Adventure for Kids and Other People...

Hopper the penguin is on his way home, or so he thinks. He hasn't counted on storms, sharks, squids, seals, and many other things that might not start with "s" trying to change his plan. He wants to see his family, not expecting the dangers, as well as the the friendships and lessons along the way.

What are readers saying about Fly Like a Penguin?

An eleven-year-old: “The book was so good that it only took me a few days to read. I couldn’t put it down! My mom liked it so much that it only took her two or three hours!”
A ten-year-old: “I was really into the book and I didn’t want to put it down! Hopper’s adventure seemed so real, it seemed like they were actually happening before my eyes!”
A mom of two preteens: “We are reading this book as a family and are all loving it! A great animal story with Biblical truths, excellent narrative, good vocabulary words for expanding a child’s vocabulary, real geographical locations and facts about animals woven in. I highly recommend it!
Wisconsin Christian News: “It’s an endearing story of Hopper the Rockhopper Penguin, whose discoveries about friendship, honor, and the Creator keep the reader enthralled page after page...Filled with humor, excitement and adventure, Fly Like a Penguin not only teaches important life lessons about honesty, hard work and integrity, but also shares with readers the importance of living for and relying on God as the Creator and Sustainer of all living creatures.”
The Long Way Home is Volume 1 of the Fly Like a Penguin book series, a humorous, somewhat educational adventure for preteens and their families.
It’s a great addition to the homeschool library or for anyone who likes penguins.
Find out for yourself what happens to Hopper as he makes his perilous journey and whether or not he actually makes it home!
