Where’s the Penguin
Buster Books

Where’s the Penguin was a large project I worked on for Buster Books. It is published as a hardback book containing 17 double page spreads, each containing a detailed scene in which a family of 10 penguins are hidden. The story follows their adventures after they escape from the zoo and make their way back to antarctica.

  1. The Bookbag

    Fantastically detailed… brilliant

    Unusually for an activity book, this is a hardback but that’s a real benefit as it makes the book excellent for use on the move. The penguins have escaped from the zoo and they can be spotted throughout the pages of this book enjoying themselves by the lake, in the desert, at the museum – in fact, all over the place. The trouble is, these are all very busy places so can you spot them? There’s a little story on each page too, so more to spot. As well, the pictures are packed with humorous details so make sure you enjoy all these.

    It’s been a great success with my daughter (almost 3-years of age) from the first glimpse. It is now a daily activity: she picks up one or two of the penguins, by turns, and looks hard until she finds it/them. Very enjoyable activity for the both of us.

    Bought this as a novelty gift for my friend, however we all loved the book and spent a good hour trying to find all the penguins! Loved the different characters and the artwork of the penguins. Great alternative to Where’s Wally for penguin lovers.

    ‘Where’s Waldo’ for penguin lovers! A fantastic book – my 7 and 5 year old love this book. Suitable for all ages.

    I must admit to being a bit of a penguin fanatic and love anything to do with the cute little critters, so when I spotted this book it had to join my collection of all things penguin. I wasn’t disappointed when it arrived. It was well packaged to protect the corners of the book.(don’t you just hate bent corners on hardbacks ?) The quality of the book in general is really good. The print is bright and bold and all the drawings are very very good. Actually finding the hidden penguins is easy to start with but gets infuriatingly difficult toward the end which is what you would expect. A great little book for leaving on the coffee table for both adults and children to enjoy.
    Overall I would give it 9/10 for entertainment value.

    My son is obsessed with penguins since watching happy feet and that makes him really keen to find all the penguins in the book.
    The book in itself is lovely, amazing designs and colours, wonderful to look at and will develop your child imagination.
    Great item to pass some time while developing new skills.
