Pierre the Penguin: A True Story


“Pierre” is our oldest African penguin and has recently become the subject of a beautifully written and illustrated children’s book. The book is titled “Pierre the Penguin” and was authored by Jean Marzollo http://www.jeanmarzollo.com/books/pierrethepenguin.html and illustrated by Laura Regan http://www.lauraregan.com/book_Pierre_the%20Penguin.html Through the next few blogs I will be filling you in on “Pierre’s” life history that inspired these talented artists. If you stop by the Academy, you can see “Pierre” and his wetsuit. They are both located in African Hall.-Pamela Schaller

  1. This is a most wonderful read that was on display at my library in Chandler, AZ. I’ve always been fascinated by penguins and am hoping to pass that fascination on to my 3 yr. old grandson. I was delighted to find the webcam site so that we can watch the penguins on a regular basis.
