Don’t Be Afraid, Little Pip

By Karma Wilson

Illustrated by Jane Chapman

Simon and Schuster 2009

Pip penguin doesnʼt want to learn to swim because sheʼs afraid of the sea. She wants to fly instead – after all, she IS a bird! But can penguins fly?

Penguins are little torpedos when they swim underwater. Bubbles stream out from their feathers like vapour trails as they zoom around hunting for food. I like the water scenes best in this book.
