Jamie Rix

One Hot Penguin
  • One Hot Penguin

  • When a young boy called Phelan Whelan is taken to the zoo by his mum on a hot summer's day, the last thing he expects is for a small hot penguin to stow away in his rucksack. Phelan soon realizes that Whistler the penguin can't live in his house, and together they plan to find a new home for him. Preferably an island somewhere near the South Pole...
