Perfect for all listeners from seven to 70, Einstein the Penguin introduces an unforgettable new character in a future-classic and fantastically funny debut for all the family to enjoy. Get ready to welcome the most extraordinary penguin into your own home....

Winner, Best Narrator (Solo), New York Festival Radio Awards  

When the Stewarts spend a sunny, frosty December day at London Zoo, they’re enchanted by one small penguin. At the delight of young Imogen and Arthur, Mrs Stewart insists the penguin 'must come and stay with them whenever he likes'.

But not one Stewart expects the penguin to turn up at their door that evening, rucksack labelled 'Einstein' on his back....

The family’s new feathered friend helps Arthur to come out of his shell and makes massive demands on Imogen’s amateur sleuthing. But together they must find out why Einstein came to them, and they must keep away from the mysterious white-coat man.

And Einstein can’t stay forever, can he?

From stunning new writing talent Iona Rangeley, this is a book that will be treasured for years to come.

Critic reviews

"This debut novel is a delight. Its wit and observation put it in the tradition of Eva Ibbotson and Hilary McKay. Full of unexpected phrases and illustrated with just the right degree of freedom and quirkiness, this is a real discovery. A joy to read aloud." (Sunday Times Children’s Book)
