Pelle and Penguiny – No Problem, says Papa Polar Bear
A little polar bear and a penguin girl become friends for life – the beginning of a warmhearted and humorous book series.
Little polar bear Pelle is blue. He is lying in his snow cave and doesn’t want to do anything. The Wise Walrus advises Pelle’s papa to get a singing bird from the South. »Not a problem,« says Papa Polar Bear. Even though he doesn’t know a whole lot about birds (or the South), he is determined to make his son happy. He travels to Iceland, Africa, and as far as the South Pole. He meets many animals along the way – but a real singing bird is not among them. Finally, he meets the orphan girl Penguiny. Although she can only cheep, Papa Polar Bear is willing to give it a try. Back home at the North Pole Penguiny’s lack of singing talent is not a problem whatsoever: Pelle wasn’t in need of a bird that sings but a friend to play with.
