Patricia Storms

Penguin is not your typical Antarctic bird. While his contented friends spend their days daydreaming, practicing yoga, and daydreaming about practicing yoga, this free spirit is planning his great escape. He's done with the frigid, barren expanse of the South Pole. He's had it with the communal escapades of his feathered fraternity. He wants adventure! Pirate, on the other hand, wants no part of his crew's raucous, adventurous ways. Exploration? Treasure? Conquest? Bah! This captain longs for a simpler life. Free from his itchy sunburns and the endless travel. Loosely based on The Prince and the Pauper, The Pirate and the Penguin is the tale of two misfits -- of how they find each other and, in the process, find the lives they've been seeking all along.

Age 4 and up.
