Penguin Flies Home
Penguin mastered his quest to soar with the eagles in Flight School--now he's heading home to teach his friends in this sweet and inspiring stand-alone companion story! Penguin loves everything about flying: the wind beneath his wings, the song that rises from his belly, and the sight of new and wonderful places. Still, he misses his penguin friends in the South Pole. So, he flips and flaps back home, ready to teach them the magic of flight! But when he arrives, his enthusiasm for flying doesn't get quite the reaction he expected. Will Penguin's friends still like him, even if they don't share his soaring dreams?

"A penguin in flight may defy the laws of physics, but all seems to work out well within this reassuring story, which makes its point with empathy and humor. The well-structured illustrations, line drawings with watercolor washes, vary from close-ups of amusing birds to large-scale scenes of sea and sky. There are few birds more endearing than Judge's Penguin, with his rotund little body, scarlet aviator glasses, and passionate attachment to his dream and his friends."-- "Booklist"
