Penguin the Magpie: The Odd Little Bird Who Saved a Family

Cameron Bloom and Bradley Trevor Greive
# UM4922 Hardcover, 207 pages; 2017
Currently Unavailable

From cradling Penguin in my hands and holding Sam in my arms I can tell you that every nerve cell, every blood vessel, every atom of our being is precious. But we are all so much more than the sum of our fragile parts. We are all our journeys, hopes, and dreams, clad in mortal wrapping paper.

A tragic accident while on a family vacation in Thailand left Cameron Bloom's vivacious wife, Sam, paralyzed from the chest down. The physical and emotional pain was devastating for Sam and her adoring husband and sons. When the boys brought home an injured magpie they named Penguin, the remarkable bird showed them that "compassion, friendship, and support can come from unexpected places." Exquisitely illustrated with Cameron's photographs of Penguin comforting, inspiring, and frolicking with Sam and the boys, Penguin the Magpie shares a profoundly moving story of family, courage, healing, and hope.
