Mr. Penguin and the Lost Treasure

Mr. Penguin and the Lost Treasure by Alex T. Smith is a welcome addition from the author of the funny and popular Claude series for young readers. Mr. Penguin is a professional adventurer with a spider sidekick named Colin. There is something to laugh about on just about every page. His first assignment is to find stolen jewels at the Museum of Extraordinary Objects. They embark on a series of crazy escapades that never muss Mr. Penguin’s jaunty bow tie and fedora. A complimentary supporting cast rounds out this rollicking tale. The illustrations perfectly capture the personalities of the characters. A happy ending ensured Mr. Penguin will not run out of fish finger sandwiches. (Easy Reader)
