Penguin's Hidden Talent by Alex Latimer

Penguin's Hidden Talent

Penguin would love to take part in the Big Annual Talent Show. But he just can't seem to find his special talent. He tries magic tricks and juggling household appliances - even burping the alphabet...But nothing seems quite right. Can his friends help him discover what he's really good at? This is an even-funnier follow-up to the brilliant Boy Who Cried Ninja. Alex Latimer has created another beautiful, atmospheric world that you long to visit and return to.

Penguins seem to be a very popular with children at the moment and this book is perfect for all penguin lovers! 

The top of the press release says 'A clever, empowering story about finding out what your special skill is.' That sums the book up perfectly. Not everyone needs to be out front, showing off to the crowds, some people need to help out behind the scenes checking that all the cogs are running like a well oiled machine. An important lesson that everyone should learn and remember. 

I think this a great book which I would recommend for children aged 5+. It is suitable for younger children but I think the message is important for older children too.

Thank you to the publishers, Random House Children's Books, for sending me the book to review.
