    Mummy Penguin has gone to find some fish and left Daddy in charge of looking after the egg. But then Daddy moves away from the Dad Huddle and finds himself and the egg whisked up into the air by a gust of wind. When they come back down to Earth, they land in the Arctic...

    Daddy must be brave and find his way home but the Arctic creatures are not very friendly. He soon bumps into a reindeer who is kind and then enjoys a breakfast with the Special Air Navigation Transport Authority. Will Daddy Penguin and the egg get back before Mummy returns? It might be possible if penguins could fly...

    Written and illustrated by Debi Gliori, this is a heart-warming tale about the bond between parent and child with a wonderfully wintry theme.
