Flight of the Dodo by Peter Brown

Continuing my researches into the efforts of Peter Brown...

Penguin and the other "Waddlers" decide they are fed up with being flightless. With a little ingenuity and a lot of hard work, they finally figure out a way they can join the "Flappers". But is there more to flying then getting themselves into the sky?

I did actually like the art in this one, especially the giant curves of the balloon and silly detail on the birds, such as their goggles. But I am really blah about poop jokes, of which I felt the story had more than its share. So, no thanks for my library.

Verdict: Purely personal dislike. Everyone else probably likes it.

ISBN: 978-0316110389; Published October 2005 by Little, Brown (out of print; later paperback version in print); Borrowed from the library
