"I love this story, which is beautifully illustrated by Jane Porter - she depicts all the birds for us so well, and they are utterly delightful; my favourite picture is Owl giving Penguin a big hug. The story shows us how important supportive friends are, and how we all have a special talent, maybe an unexpected one. A lovely book." * Parents in Touch * "A fantastic book of friendship and working together, with some truly stunning papercraft illustrations." * Read It, Daddy * "Deliciously funny, artfully constructed collage style pictures." * Books for Keeps * "Paul Stewart's delightful tale of discovering your own special talents, even though they may be different from those around you, is brought to life by Jane Porter's beautiful collage illustrations. Penguin's deepest desire has always been to fly but everything goes wrong. It is only when penguin falls into the sea that he discovers a different way to fly. This heart-warming picture book shows children that everyone has something they're good at. It's simply a matter of finding what it is." -- Chris Riddell * Guardian * "A very colourful book that is essentially about friendship, teamwork and building self-esteem. This delightful story of Penguin who yearns to fly is told with humorous text and lovely multi-coloured images. It is amusing and lively while imparting the information so that it will appeal to adults and children alike." * IBBY Link * "The artwork in this book is inspiring picture book that focuses on friendship, team work and building self-esteem." * School Librarian * "Paul Stewart's sweet, funny text and Jane Porter's characterful collage illustrations combine into a really heartwarming story about fulfilling your potential and staying content and unique. Everyone has their talent and 'special thing', and sometimes that's different to everyone else's ....What a lovely message from this great big hug of a book." * Book Trust *
