Soft cover


A delightful children’s book about little penguins

Join Kaewa the kororā as she explores her strange new world at the National Aquarium. She is taken under the flipper of Captain, a one-eyed kororā who introduces her to the colourful characters of the penguin colony. As she finds out about life in her new home — free food and fun friends! — a mysterious presence seems to be behind a series of ‘accidents’. What is going on?

This feel-good mystery for young readers and their families has a great cast of engaging characters based on real penguins at the New Zealand’s National Aquarium. Its gorgeous illustrations are full of detail and give a penguin’s-eye view of life at the aquarium.
