Away With the Penguins – Hazel Prior – 27.12.20

My daughter recommended this book to me as a sweet and lovely read, and she was right! A grumpy old lady, Veronica, contemplates her legacy and decides she wants to visit a penguin research centre at the South Pole with a view to leaving her vast fortune to them after her death. We learn about Veronica’s life through flashbacks, and begin to understand why she is the way she is while at the same time getting to know lots of fun and fascinating penguin facts! As Veronica starts to love both the penguins and her fellow research centre occupants, she melts the frozen barriers she spent a lifetime building up and allows herself to feel and heal from the pain of her past.
