There once was a sad little penguin.
The other animals were worried about him.
"What's wrong?" they asked.
"I'm a bird but I can't fly
No matter how hard I try, I can't get off the ground.
Just once I want to soar above the clouds..."
"Heartwarming and beautifully illustrated, Kerstin Schoene's North American debut picture book shows how working together can accomplish seemingly impossible goals. Young readers will enjoy helping penguin achieve his dream by reorienting the book and building a 'mountain of friends' to support him.
