'The first thing Gilbert sees when he hatches from his egg is the sky. It is love at first sight and from that moment on Gilbert longs to fly like other birds. 

'But Penguins don’t fly, they waddle, and so begins Gilbert's quest to find his place in the world. 

'Great things happen when you reach for the sky.' (Publication summary)
