Great for age
Three hungry cats. One little penguin. The odds don't look good.With bare cupboards and hungry bellies, three cats steal a penguin to catch them fish. A hilarious sequence of events unfolds as the penguin makes his escape, gets mistaken for a nun and a waiter, then finds his way safely home. Meanwhile, the cats are caught for their crime and sent to jail for a lifetime of gruel. Deftly told and beautifully illustrated by exciting debut author-illustrator Helen Hancocks.

My teenage son picked this up in a bookshop, read it, laughed and made the rest of the family read it too. We all laughed. A lot. And if my kids had been younger we'd definitely have bought it. Story time needs books like this!
