Pierre the Penguin

Written By
Jean Marzollo
Illustrated By
Laura Regan

Pierre the Penguin dives headfirst into the waters of the penguin aquarium in California Academy of Science African Hall. Rhyming narrative follows gorgeous illustrations of Pierre, the oldest African penguin in his colony. The book tells of Pierre being “in a jam” and the biologist-turned-caretaker who nursed him back to health. The heartwarming story and detailed illustrations work with the cadence, making this book enjoyable to children and adults alike. It is a well-balanced blend of educational material and art. What’s more, this is a true story! This five-time award winning book is a must-read.
