From the bestselling creators of Tippy & Jellybean - The True Story of the Brave Koala who Saved Her Baby From a Bushfire, this affirming and delightful tale is based on a true story of animal rescue and community cooperation.

Flipper and Finnegan live on a beautiful island.
Every morning they hunt for fish in the clear blue ocean waters.
Every evening they waddle up the beach together with all their friends - it's a penguin parade.

But one day, when Flipper comes up for air she gets covered in something that is black and smelly and sticky - and Finnegan is nowhere to be seen...

This is the miraculous true story of how a viral knitting campaign helped save the lives of Phillip Island's Little Penguins.
