It's official, Awesome Animals are a hit! Kids all over are diving into these frantically funny, easy-to-read chapter books and they can't wait to find out what new tricks these hilarious animals will be up to next.

In Penguin Pandemonium: The Rescue, two baby penguins are missing and the rest of the City Zoo penguins set out across the zoo on a daring rescue mission. They hang with the monkeys, fish for clues in the aquarium, and try not to get spotted by the leopard in a fast-paced adventure full of fun.

This brand new title in the Awesome Animals series is certain to keep kids laughing and reading! Comical black and white cartoon-style illustrations capture the zany spirit of the story.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
01/01/2014
Gr 2–4—These off-the-wall chapter books each feature a different cast of animal characters facing a challenge: a little panda with a big imagination surfs (on a door borrowed from a ranger's station) too far down the river; three young meerkats attempt to locate their mother in the Kalahari; and penguins in the zoo search for two missing chicks. A few animal facts are woven into the plots, but they are largely lost in the silliness that overwhelms the stories. Even serious animal lovers will quickly tire of these trite attempts at humor and adventure, from the stereotypical, such as Ping the Panda's mother speaking in proverbs, to the downright ridiculous (penguins attempting to escape from their enclosure by snowboard). Readers who persevere will at least enjoy the black-and-white cartoon illustrations that sometimes add clarity and clever details to the animals' high jinks.—Amanda Struckmeyer, Middleton Public Library, Madison, WI
