Blue Penguin

Publisher: Walker Books

Far, far away in the southernmost tip of the earth, a blue penguin is born. He dives like a penguin, swims like a penguin and catches fish like a penguin.

But Blue Penguin doesn't fit it and is left all alone. Every night, he dreams of a large white whale who rescues him from his loneliness.

Blue Penguin sings a sad song to the white whale. The music is beautiful, and another little penguin comes to listen. When they sing a new song together, all the penguins join them, along with the majestic white whale. But Blue Penguin doesn't need to be rescued now - because he has friends.

A touching story about belonging, with magical illustrations on every page.
