On a tiny island lives a waddle of Little Penguins. But their numbers are dwindling. Swampy Marsh knows what to do, but no one will listen. Soon he can count the last few penguins on the fingers of one hand. The desperate townsfolk give Swampy, and his friends Max and Mimi, one chance.
A warmly funny account of one man’s quest to save a penguin colony, with two very unusual helpers.
Diane and Craig have told this true story with skill and passion. I love this story. I love this book – Paul Jennings
