We'll warn you now: The sweet penguin in this endearing memoir will waddle away with your heart! Englishman Tom Michell shares the moving true story of a Magellan penguin he found covered in oil and struggling to survive on a beach in Uruguay in the 1970s. After cleaning the terrified animal, Michell tried to return him to the sea, but the little guy simply would not leave his hero's side. And so the aquatic bird was christened Juan Salvador Pingüino, and accompanied Michell back to the prestigious Argentinian boarding school where he taught. The joyful web-footed belly-flopper thrived in his new home, where he became a pampered mascot, a trusted confidant, and a beloved source of inspiration. The Penguin Lessons is an utterly enchanting tale of friendship and adventure! (CH)
