Our self-described penguin 'expert' finds black-and-white animals at every turn. But are any of them really penguins - and can you spot the penguin hiding on every page? Written in Simon Philip's distinctively witty voice, this is brilliantly funny storytelling that plays on the pantomime convention of 'it's behind you'. Readers will love guessing what each new animal is from the glimpse given in the artwork, before turning the page to find out. There are fun facts about all the animals in a fact file at the end of the book.

"Young readers will love guessing what each new animal is from the glimpse given in the artwork, before turning the page to find out. And there are fun facts about penguins and a host of other wacky black and white animals in a fact file at the end of the book. Laughter (in full colour) all the way!" * Pam Norfolk, Lancashire Post *
"Young listeners will love searching the pages to find its whereabouts as well as guessing the identity of the partially shown animal on each spread and laughing at the misidentifications of the so called penguin pundit. The author's manner of telling is gently humorous - the ending a hoot - and Ian Smith's delightfully droll illustrations include lots of amusing details." * Jill Bennett, Red Reading Hub *
"I think this book is such good fun and would make a perfect read-a-loud book." * Bev Humphrey, School Library Association *
