Book Overview


The brand-new HEARTWARMINGLY HILARIOUS children’s picture book from NUMBER ONE bestselling David Walliams. Illustrated by artistic genius Tony Ross.

Meet Geronimo – the baby penguin who has one dream and one dream only – and that is to fly!

But everyone knows penguins can’t fly… or can they?

With a little help from his dad and friends, baby Geronimo discovers that even the wildest of dreams can come true.

A delightfully topsy-turvy book with an uplifting message about following your dreams – another blockbusting classic from David Walliams and Tony Ross!

There are lots of funny pictures of penguins in this book, but please note any mention of ‘free’ penguins on the back cover is a joke and as such should be taken lightly.
