Abstract:

From the creator of Lars, the Little Polar Bear, comes another beguiling animal hero, Leonardo the penguin. Leonardo had a dream. He wanted to fly. Every day, Leonardo would smile confidently at his little wings and encourage them to grow. He'd stand on one leg at the top of the cliff, letting the wind brush through his feathers, and imagine that he was flying over the ocean. The other penguins laughed at Leonardo. Whoever heard of a flying penguin? But Leonardo was not discouraged. Day after day, he practiced flying. He hopped and flapped and hopped and flapped, but it was no use. He never left the ground. How Leonardo, with some encouragement from a friendly albatross, proves that perseverance pays off, and even the most impossible dreams can come true, is an uplifting story that will send young spirits soaring.
