What is the book about?
Three short weeks, two boys and one little penguin. What could possibly go wrong? When 11 (and a half) year old Marty is partnered up with Jessica on the overnight science trip, he thinks all of his dreams are about to come true. It’s his big chance to impress the most beautiful girl in Year 7 (and probably the world) and he wouldn’t miss it for anything. Only problem is: Marty can’t afford to go on the overnight trip. Yet. Inspired by the urban myth that it is possible to steal a penguin from the zoo on a school visit, Diary of a Penguin-napper is a hilarious tale of growing up, bending the rules and how one big fuss can be caused by stealing just one little penguin.
