Reviews from Around the World "Claire Freedman and Kate Hindley have created a wonderful new addition to the Oliver and Patch collection. Oliver, Patch and Ruby are great friends who head off to the zoo for a day of fun and exploration. They are having a great time but then they stumble upon a very sad and sorry little penguin that Sandy the zookeeper tells them is a newly arrived rescue penguin. Peep doesn’t yet feel like he fits in to his new environment. The next day when the friends learn Peep is missing they search all around town until they find him. Children will enjoy spotting Peep’s hiding places in various locations that Ruby and Oliver miss in their searching. When they do find Peep they discover the zoo is closed for the night and therein begins some trouble between the friends. This is a lovely tale of friendship, teamwork and cooperation. This story shows that sometimes friends argue and have disagreements but good friendships can work through these problems." - Pauline, goodreads
