Review: Penguin Pandemonium

February 13, 2015

Penguin Pandemonium

Attendance is down at City Zoo so they might have to shut down and relocate all the animals.  In a last ditch effort to save it, the zookeeper’s daughter suggests installing a camera in the penguin pen to live stream their activities.

Worried they’ll be moved and separated, the penguins decide to put on talent show that people will never forget.  Surely, that will help bring people to the zoo.

Penguin Pandemonium by Jeanne Willis is a cute middle grade book that is sure to delight young readers, especially those who love penguins.  The penguins set aside their differences to work together for the common good, encouraging each other along the way.  They find undiscovered talent and gain confidence as they put together their talent show. Nathan Reed’s adorable illustrations will keep young readers involved in the story.  You’ll want to pick this book up for the young animal lover in your life.
