Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3 - The creator of Little Polar Bear introduces Leonardo the penguin, who persists in his dream to fly, despite his peers' puzzlement. With the encouragement of an albatross that agrees to model, Leonardo attempts to create large, strap-on appendages, much like the wing studies created by his namesake in the 1500s. Luckily, the resulting crash reveals a snow-banked biplane. The brainy penguin studies the instruction manuals and takes his flock mates (plus the albatross as copilot) for a ride. Fuel runs out right after a perfect landing, and Leonardo's journey ends as he discovers the joy of "flying" underwater with his own wings...while wearing an aviator's hat, of course. De Beer's trademark watercolors and rounded characters continue to entertain. - Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA

Format: Hardcover
I love the little polar bear books, and this is another Artic saga. Hans introduces us to a penguin who wants to fly. And who hasn't wanted to do what he supposedly can't? Great illustrations as I have come to expect from de Beer and a compelling story.
