KIRKUS REVIEW

A very wistful penguin looks longingly at the Arctic sky, wishing that -- since he has wings, he could fly like a proper bird. Penguin games are all very well, on ice and in water, swimming, follow-the-leader, high-jumping, sliding and skidding--but to fly, that was what Paddy really wanted. A helicopter is the instrument of fulfillment to Paddy and his young companions as the whole community of baby penguins go for a joy ride high above the ice. Paul Galdone whose animal stories and drawings have won him a considerable reputation catches the humor of the penguin without sacrificing accuracy in his treatment of the aquatic bird.
