Penguin Pandemonium – Christmas Crackers (Awesome Animals) by Jeanne Willis is the 4th book about the quirky penguins which live in City Zoo. It’s Christmas time at City Zoo and the penguins go on a wild adventure when they managed to escape from their enclosure and hid in Santa’s sack. They took a ride on the reindeer pulled sledge to Wheatfield’s Infant School.
The penguins had a whale of an adventure there where they build a snow penguin, made Christmas cards for each others and their friends and decorated a tree.
The penguins learned about the real meaning of Christmas which is sharing with their friends and not just about receiving presents from Santa.
I found this an interesting kids book which Doggie boy and I read together. We read out a chapter of the book each night before bedtime with both of us taking turns to read the pages. Both of us found the story really hilarious and refreshing to read. It really tied into the theme of sharing and being grateful during Christmas.
I will certainly be looking out for the other books in this series the next time we visit the library.
