There is still a place where magicks exist. Where a wish can come true simply by believing. The penguins, seemingly just black and white, are so much more. They are the last magical creatures of the Earth. Through rituals and tradition, the remaining magicks are made into wishes which each penguin gives up to the sky, wishing their wish through the clouds and up towards the heavens where they are told they hide and find their destiny behind the moon. But this is not the story of tradition, nor of those wishes that have all but been wished away. This is the story of one penguin who will not abandon her wish to chance.




This is the deepest, most thought-provoking children’s book I’ve ever read! … I give this book a High Five for it’s thought-provoking plot, it’s beautiful, richly-written text, and the adorable names of the characters – three bunnies that are only out at night – the Dusk Bunnies; the Council Members – Rufus Alfar and Balthum Lazlo. Just like real penguins – very dignified indeed! This is not your ordinary children’s book, but it’s sure to get the older kids involved and interested in the extraordinary plot. They will also be charmed and fascinated by the lives of these very magical penguins.”
