Fight of the Dodo
Flight of the Dodo by Peter Brown
Illustrated by Peter Brown
Penguin is having a good day. It's nice outside and he's going for a waddle, when a goose poops on him. "If I could fly I'd at least watch where I pooped!" This is the last drop. Penguin decides that he's had enough. It's time to figure out a way to fly. So he gathers other Waddlers and finds a way to explore the skies. Once up there he runs into trouble and needs the help of the Flappers...the geese.
Flight of the Dodo is a hilarious story about not giving up on your dreams and the quest for adventure...and poop. What kid can resist a book with a great storyline and beautiful illustrations that just happens to mention poop more than once? I can't think of any. Peter Brown has definitely become on my favorite authors.
