Nabil Steals a Penguin

Nabil is in for more than he bargains for on a family trip to the Zoo where he meets Pierre, a cheeky penguin who is fed up of fish and looking for a tastier dish! Nabil shares his mom’s biryani rice with Pierre and so unfolds a story of being welcoming to others, family, and a penguin who loves curry!

Told in a catchy rhyming script, this playful, funny and joyful story speaks to children’s imaginations and is sure to have them laughing out loud as Pierre’s outrageous behaviour causes general chaos for Nabil as he tries to keep the penguin hidden. The lovable characters are brought to life through considered illustration that is engaging and expressive drawn in vivid colour and detail. They really add to the fun and silliness of the story.

Although the story is full of humour, it also carries an important message of acceptance and inclusivity and shows how food brings us all together no matter the background. When Nabil asks if Pierre can stay, he is welcomed with open arms, and lots of wonderful food.

A wholesome story with an important message, topped off with a fantastic chocolate cake.
