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.

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.

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.
