Summary
Orville lives at the zoo, surrounded by animal pals who go on exciting adventures. A hang gliding rhino! A deep-sea diving giraffe! Orville struggles to keep up, until one day he concocts an adventure all his own: build a spaceship and fly to the moon all by himself. Can one tiny penguin get there alone?

Penguinaut is perfect for every child who's said, "I can do it myself!" and comes to find that the rewards are much richer when shared with friends. Marcie Colleen's playful text and Emma Yarlett's charming, whimsical illustrations are sure to delight both children and their parents.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "A penguin yearning for the ability to fly is a common premise in picture books, but Colleen tweaks the formula for her story of Orville, a penguin desperate for a big adventure. Tired of seeing his large zoo friends having grand adventures cue the hang-­gliding rhino Orville decides to best them all by going to the moon. Figuring out how to get there involves a lot of trial and error, but eventually he builds a penguin-sized, cardboard rocket ship and blasts into space. He takes in the awesome view and enjoys the effects of low gravity, but these joys quickly give way to loneliness. Thankfully, his Earth-bound friends sneaked a token of encouragement into his space suit's pocket that fuels both Orville's return home and a heartwarming revelation. Orville's scheme gets delightful treatment in Yarlett's mixed-media illustrations, which echo the penguin's boundless enthusiasm and small size. Indeed, the largeness of the other zoo animals and of outer space results in one- and two-page spreads perfect for group sharing. A fun, unsentimental adventure in friendship and independence.--Julia Smith Copyright 2018 Booklist"
