Product Description

The Adventures of Zeppi series - Penguin Books for Kids!

How it all started ...

A lonely boy named Alesdor wishes for a new friend. One morning he discovers a penguin in his garden. A penguin! How is that possible? Is the penguin lost? Did it escape from a zoo?

Book #1 - New Friends

Will Alesdor keep Zeppi the penguin and give him a new home? .

What Readers Are Saying

  • Zeppi the penguin falls off a delivery truck on his way to the Antarctica and finds himself stranded. He is separated from his parents and fellow penguins and dearly misses them. To his delight, he makes his way into a residential backyard and discovers a new friend. Alesdor, who is also alone, finds himself in need of companionship because his best friend has moved to Portugal.
    In this adorable children's story of Zeppi the penguin and his new found friend, a young boy named Alesdor, you will be sure to quickly turn the pages to see what happens next! Beautifully illustrated and written. The author uses vivid descriptions to awaken your child's imagination. I can't wait to read what happens next in the series!
  • I feel it is reassuring in addressing a fact many kids face: being afraid to be alone away from their parents. Also discerning that there may be bad people, but good people too. Also obviously touches the idea of environment by way of a compost heap. The drawings are cute, a child could want to try and imitate them. Short but ideal length for a youngster. Highly recommended!

My five year old was a bit concerned at the beginning when Zeppi the penguin fell out of the truck but he was quickly caught up in the exciting adventures of this wonderful little penguin. Now he has asked for all the books! I love them too, with their environmental ecological tips snuck into the stories. And the illustrations are beautiful. These are detailed, high quality, well written stories that adults will enjoy reading to/with their kids. The Adventures of Zeppi - A Penguin Story - #1 New Friends by C.K. Omillin is great children’s book anyone will love. I can’t recommend this enough. 5 stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Adventures of Zeppi - New Friends 13 July 2013
By Julia Busch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This has to be one of the most charming, poignant children's stories I have ever read. What child isn't looking for a special friend to cherish and love and one to love him or her back? The sweet, longing, helplessness of a baby penguin, named Zeppi, who has fallen off of a truck and is separated from his mother and father, who are being shipped back to Antarctica, is the perfect friend for Alesdor, a giving, gracious boy. Zeppi's traumatic fall from the truck and meeting Alesdor, sets the stage for many sweet stories to come. How do I know? I've read the others and somehow missed this one. So glad I found it.

Beautifully illustrated, Zeppi is now available in paperback. You can find the first volume here The Adventures of Zeppi #1 New Friends (Volume 1).

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars So cute, easy with a suspense too 7 October 2012
By Suzanne Aubertin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was a nice enticing story, I'm looking forward to the following adventures of Zeppi. It is a simple clear story, complete in itself but leaves you wanting for the continuity. I feel it is reassuring in addressing a fact many kids face: being afraid to be alone away from their parents. Also discerning that there may be bad people, but good people too. Also obviously touches the idea of environment by way of a compost heap. The drawings are cute, a child could want to try and imitate them. Short but ideal length for a youngster. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great beginning to a new Zeppi series 7 October 2013
By Glorybee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I picked up this book for my grandchildren as I was going through children's books looking for a new author for them and I'm so glad I did. The children immediately fell in love with the little penguin and were really scared for him when his cage fell off the truck and he was alone and away from his friends and family. Later they clapped with joy when Zeppi found a new friend and a new home.

This story kept them enthralled and they loved the beautifully soft drawings. This may have been the first Zeppi book I bought, but it certainly won't be the last.

5.0 out of 5 stars Children's Creative Storytelling at its Best! 1 October 2013
By Dawn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a story about a precious little penguin who gets separated from his parents when his cage falls off a truck - but not to worry, he meets a new friend soon.

The imaginative story brilliantly entwines a gentle message to children on separation and making new friends. The story even throws a little lesson in there on taking care of the environment.

I loved this first Zeppi book and it is the perfect preface for many more adventures with Zeppi and his friends in a new series.
