At a South Pole gala, the penguin of Osbert's dreams waddles into his life in a charming return of the winning pair from MY PENGUIN OSBERT.
Joe couldn't be more surprised to fi nd his friend Osbert knocking at his front door — AWOL from the zoo — with an invitation to a South Pole extravaganza under his wing. Since penguins can't fly, and Joe has a helicopter from Santa, the boy is soon piloting a bunch of penguins on a long journey south. But when Osbert ignores the southern lights and only has eyes for a penguin named Aurora, Joe starts to worry. Will he ever get back in time for his own family's midwinter bash?
