Well Done, Mummy Penguin by Chris Haughton


From Chris Haughton comes a funny, suspenseful celebration of mothers set against an atmospheric Antarctic backdrop.

Mummy Penguin is off to find a fishy dinner for her family. She has to swim very fast, climb a slippery cliff - cu-crunch, cu-crunch, cu-crunch - and even tiptoe past some sleeping seals. Shh! All the while, Little Penguin looks on in awe and says: ""Well done, Mummy Penguin!""

The icy - and treacherous! - Antarctic landscapes are breathtaking in this funny and exciting celebration of all that mothers do, and all that mothers are.


'Bold colours, simple repetition and a witty ending make this a delightful bedtime read.'Daily Mail

'[…]a celebration of mothers' The Bookseller

'With his instantly-recognisable blocky illustration style that combines collage and digital art, Haughton succeeds in creating energetic scenes that will excite the young reader. The book is made to be read aloud, with comforting repetition and text that comes to life; “Cu-crunch… tip-toe… boink boink boink… splash!' Books Ireland

'This is a book to share with young children – to enjoy. I have no doubt that readers will want to revisit this playful story, again and again, to join in with the repeated refrains and actions. It is a gift for any Early Years Setting or bedtime story routine.' Just Imagine
