Call of the Penguins

From the No.1 bestselling author of Away with the Penguins

Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Veronica McCreedy returns in the delightfully feel-good new novel from the No. 1 bestselling author of Away with the Penguins - sure to become a firm favourite with readers!

Meet the heroine everyone's talking about . . .

Fiercely resilient and impeccably dressed, Veronica McCreedy has lived an incredible 87 years. Most of them alone, in her huge house by the sea.

But Veronica has recently discovered a late-life love for family and friendship, adventure and wildlife.

More specifically, a love for penguins!

And so when she's invited to co-present a wildlife documentary, far away in the southern hemisphere, she jumps at the chance.

Even though it will put her in the spotlight, just when she thought she would soon fade into the wings.

Perhaps it's never too late to shine?
