When Grandad Was a Penguin

In the new picture book When Grandad was a Penguin by Morag Hood, a child”s grandfather accidentally swaps places with a penguin during a visit to the local zoo.

This leads scenes of great comedy as the penguin tries to live in a house, use the toilet, and take tea with the family, who notice that Grandad now talks a lot about fishing, and spends a lot of time in the bathroom.


“He talked a lot about fishing.”
