About the Author
One day Marty Love looked out at the water in front of his home on Puget Sound and saw a penguin floating by on a log. Many years later it hit him, "Hey, what was that penguin doing there?" Penguins don't belong in Puget Sound. Thus began the long quest to find the history of that traveling penguin. Much research and writing resulted in what has become the Fly Like a Penguin book series for middle grade readers and other people who like adventure and laughs.
