A hilarious penguin chase picture book all about animal recognition.
Simon was born in Chichester in 1988 and has lived there ever since. After studying History at Exeter University, he decided to become a primary school teacher. Teaching rekindled his love of children's books, so much so that he decided to have a go at writing his own. He is the author of I Don't Know What to Call my Cat, You Must Bring a Hat, and the Waterstones Prize shortlisted I Really Want the Cake.
"Young readers will love guessing what each new animal is from the
glimpse given in the artwork, before turning the page to find out.
And there are fun facts about penguins and a host of other wacky
black and white animals in a fact file at the end of the book.
Laughter (in full colour) all the way!"
*Pam Norfolk, Lancashire Post*
"Young listeners will love searching the pages to find its whereabouts as well as guessing the identity of the partially shown animal on each spread and laughing at the misidentifications of the so called penguin pundit. The author's manner of telling is gently humorous - the ending a hoot - and Ian Smith's delightfully droll illustrations include lots of amusing details."
*Jill Bennett, Red Reading Hub*
"I think this book is such good fun and would make a perfect read-a-loud book."
*Bev Humphrey, School Library Association*
