An epic picture book voyage full of friendship and adventure by award-winning author Jeanne Willis.
Everybody knows that penguins belong at the South Pole and polar bears live at the North Pole, but what would happen if, one day, a family of picnicking penguins accidentally got lost? When the hapless Pilchard-Brown family finds themselves at completely the wrong pole, they need Mr White, the friendly polar bear, to guide them all the way home. Their journey takes them all around the world from New York to Venice to Sydney until, finally, they reach the South Pole . . . and Mr White finds a new home in the heart of the family too.
A funny and heartwarming bedtime story that proves it's not about the destination but the journey itself.
