              It is another beautiful day in Patagonia as a colony of penguins snuggles on the iceberg they call home. Little Milo is nestled next to his mother, Winter, while his father, Tux, is out hunting for food. But when a big crack in the iceberg suddenly separates Milo and his mother f...rom Tux and all the food, it seems that all hope is lost when the current begins to carry the icebergs even further apart. The iceberg is simply too heavy for the penguins to push back together-or so they think. While battling the current, the penguins must band together as a team and wait for the right time to implement their new plan. When one plan doesn't work, the penguins brainstorm to create another one. But it turns out they are not the only creatures with big challenges. Through perseverance, helping others, leading, inspiring, networking, and growing, the penguins and their creature friends must somehow find a way to overcome their obstacles, no matter how difficult. In this charming animal story, a colony of penguins and other creatures help children learn that being determined, working with others for a common goal, and embracing differences is what helps us succeed in life.

              Right after author Bruce M. Barrett graduated from high school at Peacock Military Academy in San Antonio, he accompanied his father and mother to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, where his dad was to be the military attache to the US ambassador to Saudi Arabia. Flight from Arabia recounts ...Bruce's adventures in Saudi Arabia, including accompanying his dad on some pretty hair-raising then-secret missions and his trip home to go to college. Bruce's father assigned him to accompany a general's daughter back to the States, and they wound up on an air force cargo plane traveling through Egypt, Libya, and Pakistan, among other places. Together they explored the cultures and their budding friendship along the way. Bruce shares his memories of Saudi Arabia and its people from the heyday of the nation's alliance with the United States. This memoir recalls the adventure of a lifetime as two college-bound military brats in the mid-1960s take a military flight from the Middle East across Africa and Europe to the States.
