The Greatest Showpenguin
(Written and illustrated by Lucy Freegard)
Published by Pavilion Children's Books - February 2021, Paperback
What could be better than The Greatest Showman? The Greatest Showpenguin of course! Hot on the heels of the record-breaking movie, and with a sequel coming shortly, we present a funny and sensitive parody.
Poppy the Penguin comes from a long line of circus performers. Many skills have been passed down from penguin to penguin. However, Poppy feels that performing in the family circus might not be for her. But the hardest thing is not juggling, or riding a unicycle - it's telling her mum that she doesn't want to perform any more. The bravery is worth it when Poppy discovers a role more suited to her - organising and coordinating the whole show. And what a show it turns out to be!
A tale of overcoming shyness and lack of confidence, finding success and a celebration of girl power!
