Chooks in Dinner Suits: A Tale of Big Dogs and Little Penguins

By Diane Jackson Hill
Illustrated by Craig Hill

For ages 3–6

On a tiny island lives a waddle of Little Penguins. But their numbers are dwindling. Swampy Marsh knows what to do, but no one will listen. Soon he can count the last few penguins on the fingers of one hand. The desperate townsfolk give Swampy, and his friends Max and Mimi, one chance.

Will his solution work? Will Swampy save the Little Penguins of Middle Island?

A warmly funny account of one man’s quest to save a penguin colony, with two very unusual helpers. This story is based on events that took place on Middle Island, Warrnambool and have become well known to the public.

This true story, which features both human and animal heroes, has been written as a heartwarming tale by Diane Jackson Hill. Craig Smith’s lively illustrations capture all the drama and humour of the predicament and the characters involved.

Why picture books?
Picture books cover a diverse range of topics, expose children to words and language they might not hear normally in conversation, and teach children how reading works (left to right, top to bottom). While picture books might be too hard for early readers to read by themselves at first, the books are not too hard to understand. Reading picture books with your child will inspire them to learn to read on their own, and experience the pleasure of reading.
