Publisher's Summary

Otto isn't an ordinary penguin: he is the first penguin chick to be born that year, which means that it is his job to look after all the other young penguins. But out in the snow and ice of Antarctica, there is an awful lot to learn, and Otto has to discover for himself how to swim, dive, and catch fish before he can teach anyone else. And how will he do that when all the grown-ups are too busy to help?

    "Brilliant"

    My 5 and 6 yr old sons just love all Jill Tomlinsons books, but this one in particular. The story is great, really funny and full of animal facts. Maureen Lipman's reading is just brilliant, how she can keep so many voices straight in her head I just don't know. But it makes the story really easy to follow. Highly recommend.

    "My son loves it!"

    My 5 yr old son has this on to go to sleep to every night - I'd say that's a good review!
