It's spring in Australia when Periwinkle, a little blue penguin, begins her journey to Antarctica where she'll meet all of her penguin cousins. Along the way she learns a lot about her world and herself. The smallest penguin of all, Periwinkle is not only shorter than her cousins, but she is also blue and -most importantly- different from the rest. Hesitant at first, Periwinkle learns during her journey to be brave and realizes that it's not how you look on the outside, but it's what's inside that matters.
