Peter the Penguin Pioneer

My third children’s novel is about a handsome penguin explorer and his pint-sized co-pilot Punky, the only penguin with tufty ear feathers. Shortlisted for the 2010 Blue Peter Book Awards. Also shortlisted for the Rotherham Children’s Book Award and longlisted for the Doncaster Book Award. Ice cool!

Illustrated by the amazing David Roberts.
An hilarious new tale from Nestlé Gold award winner Daren King. Children will laugh out loud at the zany humour and the witty one-liners.

This is an incredibly funny and imaginative story as well as being totally ridiculous.
 
Family Interest Magazine


Peter the Penguin Pioneer is full of cracking one-liners that children will love.
 
The Sun


King is very good at making children think about their world. Hugely inventive and charmingly funny, early readers will adore having this book read to them, and will love trying it themselves.
