Itipurú y el monstruo del océano by Margarita Pérez García
A captivating and beautifully illustrated story for learners of Spanish! Itipurú is the smallest chick of a blue penguin colony in New Zealand. Itipurú wants to be independent and swim and hunt for food like the older chicks, but he is still moulting and is grounded ashore. If he goes into the sea with baby feathers he will die of cold. When an earthquake shatters the island, all the animals that can swim flee, leaving Itipurú behind. Now he must reach the colony to survive, but will he make it with a vicious sea monster between him and his family?
