When Mr. Penguin boards a glitzy cruise ship, he quickly discovers the boat is bound for dubious straits. From Alex T. Smith’s delightfully wacky detective series!
“Gloriously silly…. Ridiculously charming.” —Kirkus Reviews
Dashing detective Mr. Penguin and his adventuring gang board a luxury cruise ship for some much-needed rest and a little entertainment. With Colin, his kung fu spider sidekick, preparing to perform with the Ladies Choir and fish finger sandwiches available twenty-four hours a day, Mr. Penguin isn’t even bothered by the fact that he can’t swim and is deeply afraid of water.
But when a series of odd events infiltrates a façade of glamorous parties filled with a who’s who of film stars and politicians, Mr. Penguin can’t help but feel that something shifty is happening on board. And when he befriends a young stowaway with a mystery of her own, he soon finds that adventures are lying in wait.
This third installment in the wacky, page-turning series from Alex T. Smith (Claude) is sure to thrill young readers looking for a good adventure and major laughs. Black and orange illustrations throughout.
