Book Review: Courtney Saves Christmas by Emlyn Chand
What a wonderful book - I love penguins and Courtney is the best. Courtney insists that she must thank Santa for her Christmas gift a compass, but she must take a trip to do so.
Through seas, deserts and more snow she finally makes it from the South Pole to the North Pole to see Santa.
Courtney must help Santa and the reindeer this year so that all the presents will get delivered. How can that happen - penguins don't fly - but then again it's Christmas time.
The illustrations are wonderful and I would love to see more of them. I read an ebook, but highly recommend to add this to your bookshelves
Courtney is a peppy young penguin who just loves exploring, and is overjoyed when she receives a compass from Santa on Christmas morning. She’s so grateful for the gift, in fact, that she just needs to give Santa a great big hug and say “Thank you!” in person. The only problem is she lives in the South Pole, and Santa is all the way on the other side of the globe!
With the aid of her new compass, Courtney sets off on a journey that takes her almost an entire year. By the time she reaches Santa’s workshop, the elves are in a flurry preparing for the upcoming holiday. Unfortunately, Rudolph is feeling very sick—too sick to guide the sleigh. If Courtney can’t find a way to help, Christmas will be ruined and all the children of the world will be devastated. What’s a little penguin to do?
