From the international bestselling creator of Claude, comes a brand new hero - Mr Penguin.



I loved this book because it kept you hooked, thrilled and interested. Additionally, I also really enjoyed the suspension, mystery and made you want to solve the problem with Mr Penguin himself. I could make vivid images in my mind and the illustrations are hilarious yet beautiful.

I really enjoyed this book as it was a mystery book. I love mystery books as you don't know what can happen next, or you have a feeling something bad will happen (like in this book). The only thing I would improve would be adding more detail. The thing I liked best, was making the journey very, very interesting. There was a river inside of the museum and a jungle! In fact, my favourite character is the spider, Colin. He had to write on a notebook to actually communicate which was a bit funny. He was an innocent spider who was treated as a human! I would happily recommend this to someone as they could also feel like a detective trying to figure out where the noise was coming from (Miss Bones banging on the cupboard to get out).

This book is a good book but I don't really recommend it to someone else beacause in the begining it is a lot boring but then after it starts getting interesting

I like this book because it’s funny but a bit scary at the same time. It’s a good adventure for younger children who want something like Indiana Jones. Probably for ages 7-9 years old. A brilliant adventure with a brilliant penguin and don’t forget Colin the spider. Reviewed by: Esquire Sketch Satellite
