Foyles Notes

Imagine Poirot, crossed with Indiana Jones, crossed with a Penguin.

Meet Mr. Penguin, an adventurer who also happens, quite by chance, to be a penguin. A marvellous new adventure by the author of the Claude series, it's illustrated with Alex T Smith's signature eccentricity and eye for the wacky. Tasked with hunting down the lost treasure in a crumbling old museum, Mr Penguin finds himself up against dastardly criminals, mysterious hijinks and his own clumsiness. Alex T Smith is always a winner for me, his books are so full of wisdom, humour and warmth.

Isobel, Westfield Stratford
