Plume: World Explorer: World Explorer (Hardcover)
Hitch a ride on the Albatross Express and travel the globe with Plume: World Explorer. This exciting new series for little ones celebrates culture, diversity and the natural wonders of our world. Plume is not your typical Antarctic penguin. He loves to cook, read, knit sweaters and ice skate, and he sports a yellow plume on top of his head. Plume is bored of black and white, and of shuffling and snoozing on icebergs. He craves color, adventure, excitement! He wants to seize the world he's discovered between the pages of his fantastical Antarctic library (the largest in the Southern Hemisphere). Plume's greatest hope is to grow the hearts and minds of anyone who joins him in boarding the Albatross Express. Through his travels, children will engage with themes such as friendship, acceptance and the wellbeing of our planet. This is a book series for our times.
