From the international bestselling creator of Claude, comes a brand new hero - Mr Penguin, adventurer and penguin.

Indiana Jones meets Hercule Poirot in this new Alex T. Smith series with plenty of slapstick humour, mystery and adventure. Highly illustrated throughout with a striking black and orange design.

It has been weeks since Mr Penguin's last adventure and he's been stuck at his desk, twiddling his flippers ever since. That is until the phone rings!

Mr Penguin and Colin (a spider and Mr Penguin's silent right hand man) are called in to find the missing treasure somewhere in the Museum of Extraordinary Objects. The quest finds them solving secret codes, fighting ferocious beasts, eating fish finger sandwiches and travelling deep below the museum to a lost jungle...

Praise for Alex T. Smith's Claude series:
'Illustrated with humour and elegance.' Sunday Times
'Quirky illustrations with plenty of humour.' The Metro

Claude won the 5-9 young fiction Sainsbury's Children's Book Award, was selected for the Waterstone's Children's Book Prize, the Richard and Judy Book Club and is soon to be a TV star on Disney Junior with 52 episodes airing in 2017. Alex T. Smith is a World Book Day Illustrator.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The perfect introduction to mystery stories * The Scotsman *
A thrilling adventure reminiscent of Indiana Jones . . . loads of humour in both the text and the excellent illustrations and the lovely balance of warmth, wit and mild peril is perfect for children of about seven upwards * The Bookbag *
Packed to the gills with quirky and irrevenrant illustrations in black, white and orange. Inspector Closeau mets Indiana Jones. You definitely need to p-p-pick up this Penguin! * South Wales Evening Post (Swansea) *
Miss Bones has a tendency to clasp her bosom; Mr Penguin has a fancy for crabsticks. Both indulgences have to be put on hold as they try to outwit dangerous criminals. * Sainsbury's Magazine *
