Happy Feet - Friends Forever by Siobhan Ciminera

This book of 32 pages filled with colourful pictures can fascinate any Happy Feet-loving kid. Actually, the book is almost wholly blue as it is a story of 2 penguin friends, Gloria and Mumble, and they live in Emperor Land.

They live in Emperor Land so they are most probably the Emperor Penguins, which is the largest species of penguins. On the other hand, the Little Blue Penguin or the Fairy Penguin is the smallest penguin species. I read up this bit of interesting information on Wikipedia.

What is peculiar is that while penguins are under the bird family, they cannot fly. An even more peculiar fact is that penguins can swim! They eat fish, squid, and krill. A krill is a 'tiny shellfish found in the sea around the Antarctic'. Whales feed on krill too. If you want to find out more about penguins, you can always do a seach on Google. Just type in 'penguins' and a million pages will be brought to you.

My niece obviously likes the animated movie very much. It is like an all-star movie, that is the voices of the characters belong to big time stars such as Elijah Wood, Robin Williams, Brittany Murphy, Hugh Jackman, Nicole Kidman, and Hugo Weaving!
