AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Mumble, a young penguin living in the Antarctic, is the only penguin in his colony who is unable to sing: all other penguins attract mates by singing their 'heartsong'. But Mumble can do something that no other penguin has ever been able to do: tap dance. And with this talent, he can not only attract his soulmate but also stop the over-fishing that is endangering the penguin population.
