Book Description

Described as ‘exquisite’ and ‘charming’, you will easily fall in love with this sweet, yet powerful, little rhyming story.

Pipsy, a young blue penguin - who hatches too early - has a secret and a huge dream. With a mother’s love and much determination, Pipsy grows gradually, but do his fanciful dreams come true?

Follow the story brought to life by beautiful, original illustrations that magically capture little Pipsy on his journey of discovery.


 Paula’s comments

My little boy, (who’s not so little now) used to adore penguins. They are one of his favourite animals. So this picture book was one of many stories made up for him.

Even though my son was not born premature, as Pipsy is, the story touches on having dreams, no matter what your limitations are, and then having the courage and the trust to go for them.

A powerful, encouraging message, wrapped up in a fun, little picture book!

I hope you enjoy it, it was fun to write!
