Age range 3 to 6 years On a tiny island lives a waddle of Little Penguins. But their numbers are dwindling. Swampy Marsh knows what to do, but no one will listen. Soon he can count the last few penguins on the fingers of one hand. The desperate townsfolk give Swampy, and his frie...nds Max and Oddball, one chance. Will his 'Oddball' solution work? Will Swampy save the Little Penguins of Middle Island? A warmly funny account of one man's quest to save a penguin colony, with two very unusual helpers. This story is based on events that took place on Middle Island and Warrnambool, and were made famous in the 2015 feature film 'Oddball'. This true story, which features both human and animal heroes, has been written as a heartwarming tale by Diane Jackson Hill. Craig Smith's lively illustrations capture all the drama and humour of the predicament and the characters involved.
