Flight of the Dodo

By Peter Brown (Trade Paperback, 2010)
When Penguin gets pooped on by a goose flying by, he becomes more determined than ever to learn to fly. So, with the help of his other flightless friends (aka the Waddlers), the foursome builds a flying machine that takes them on an adventure like none they've ever known.

With a cast of quirky, can-do characters that young readers are sure to love, Flight of the Dodo is a comic adventure story about the desire to fly, the persistence to dream big, and poop!
