About the book

This delightful story follows Ponko the Penguin and his friend Joey Bear as they stow away on a sledge to take part in the Great Expedition to the South Pole, munching expedition biscuits and chocolate raisins as they go. Disaster strikes when they fall off the sledge and it looks like the pair will never reach the South Pole. But then Sid Skua comes to the rescue. Based on the real toy penguin Ponko, who belonged to Antarctic explorer and photographer Herbert Ponting, this is a beautifully crafted picture book that will enchant young readers.
