Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Orville is a little penguin who lives in a zoo and dreams of big adventures, like going to the Moon; the other animals are skeptical, but Orville is determined, so he builds a spaceship and sets out all by himself--and discovers that real adventures are best when they are shared with friends.

    A penguin yearning for the ability to fly is a common premise in picture books, but Colleen tweaks the formula for her story of Orville, a penguin desperate for a big adventure. Tired of seeing his large zoo friends having grand adventures—cue the hang-­gliding rhino—Orville decides to best them all by going to the moon. Figuring out how to get there involves a lot of trial and error, but eventually he builds a penguin-sized, cardboard rocket ship and blasts into space. He takes in the awesome view and enjoys the effects of low gravity, but these joys quickly give way to loneliness. Thankfully, his Earth-bound friends sneaked a token of encouragement into his space suit's pocket that fuels both Orville's return home and a heartwarming revelation. Orville's scheme gets delightful treatment in Yarlett's mixed-media illustrations, which echo the penguin's boundless enthusiasm and small size. Indeed, the largeness of the other zoo animals and of outer space results in one- and two-page spreads perfect for group sharing. A fun, unsentimental adventure in friendship and independence.
