About The Book


Nicanor, a penguin from Patagonia, has been on a lovely vacation in Brazil. But while swimming home, he gets caught in an oil spill. He’s so sick, he cannot swim anymore. He’s afraid he’ll never see his friends in Patagonia again.

After washing up on a beach, Nicanor is found by John, who takes the penguin home to his family. They nurse him back to health, and he is happy there. For a whole year, he’s fed and loved and cared for. One day, John tells Nicanor the family is moving to the city, and the penguin should consider going home.
