Get ready for adventure with Mr Penguin!

Mr Penguin is a dapper detective ready to crack even the toughest of mysteries - but not before he's had a fishfinger sandwich...

Calling all adventurers!

We are SO excited to be giving away four books in Alex T. Smith's utterly hilarious Mr Penguin series - perfect for mystery-fans, adventure-fiends, and those who understand the importance of a good lunch on an escapade! Join Mr Penguin and his sidekick Colin the spider - the strong, silent type - on their madcap adventures, fighting ferocious beasts, navigating twisting, turning underground jungles, and making sure to keep a constant supply of fishfinger sandwiches on an oceanic cruise.

With short chapters, clear text and comical black-and-orange illustrations, this rip-roaring adventure will be a big hit with newly independent readers who are looking for more challenging stories.

To celebrate the brand new, fourth book in the series, Mr Penguin and the Tomb of Doom, we're giving you the chance to get your hands on the entire set of books!
