Synopsis: Wally is an Emperor Penguin from Antarctica who isn't exactly like the other penguins. Wally is always cold. So, he takes a journey to the Galapagos Islands in search of warm weather and discovers an amazing world of tap-dancing crabs, racing hundred-year-old tortoises and diving birds with bright blue feet.
Wally the Warm-Weather Penguin is a delightful rhyming book for children aged 1 - 4. Children will love the bright and colorful illustrations of the unique wildlife in the Galapagos Islands while the simple, rhyming text brings these curious animals to life. Come along with Wally and visit this very special place!
A delight to read, Wally will capture the hearts of children and adults alike. He's an adventurous young penguin who longs to be warm and sets off from Antarctica to the Galapagos Islands.
Beautifully written, with a fun, catchy rhyme and the illustrations are gorgeous; colourful and eye-catching. Wally's sense of fun and adventure will appeal to children and the child in us 'big people.'
As Wally explores the Galapagos Islands, readers are introduced to some of the unusual creatures that make their home there. At the end of the story is a Fascinating Facts section about the animals which older children and adults reading to children will also appreciate.
I adored Wally the Warm-Weather Penguin, this was a fun book to read aloud and my granddaughter loved the bright colours. I'd love to join Wally for more adventures ... somewhere else warm of course.
