Pierre the Penguin, A True Story
( Sleeping Bear Press $15.95 Score: )

Like all penguins, Pierre began to molt--he dropped his feathers. Unlike most penguins, Pierre's feathers did not grow back. Poor Pierre was too cold to swim and too strange looking to other penguins. Living at the California Academy of Science, a biologist came up with the notion of making a wet suit for Pierre. Happily the experiment worked and gradually Pierre grew his feathers back! Based on events in a real penguin's life, this creative biologist's actions reinforce the notion that there can be positive outcomes to seemingly hopeless experiences. A science book with a very human touch at its heart! 5 & up.
