At a South Pole gala, the penguin of Osbert's dreams waddles into his life in a charming return of the winning pair from MY PENGUIN OSBERT.

Joe couldn't be more surprised to fi nd his friend Osbert knocking at his front door AWOL from the zoo with an invitation to a South Pole extravaganza under his wing. Since penguins can't fly, and Joe has a helicopter from Santa, the boy is soon piloting a bunch of penguins on a long journey south. But when Osbert ignores the southern lights and only has eyes for a penguin named Aurora, Joe starts to worry. Will he ever get back in time for his own family's midwinter bash?
