Penguins of Madagascar and other Penguin Awareness Day picks

by Sophie Green

Looking for a story with little arctic friends? We've chosen a few picks to celebrate Penguin Awareness Day (Thursday 20 January) and give penguin-loving children something to read.

Follow Mr Penguin and his trusty sidekick Colin (the spider) as they head into the desert! When their good friend Edith is kidnapped, they're on their most important mission yet. Can they survive a perilous train journey to the great pyramids? Will Mr Penguin complete the three impossible tasks - and get home in time for a fish finger sandwich?

Evil Emperor Penguin is closer than ever to taking over the whole world! He's got competition, though. As he and his minion Eugene will have to overcome the challenge of Evil Cat and his sidekick Flegbert! With the prize close to his grasp, Evil Emperor Penguin will have to make the ultimate choice - save his friends or take over the world.

You can also take a look at our penguin-themed children's eBooks on our OverDrive.
