Review

In this warm and wise bedtime story within a story, Bib the penguin begs his parents to be told once more about the time when dragons came to live in his family’s land of ice and snow; about the unassailable love that developed between a mummy in search of an egg and a Little One who didn’t look like all the other babies, and how that love helped her to grow up strong and brave; and about the moment the volcano woke up and the Little One was left to work out for herself how to escape the terrible flames. Eventually it is revealed that the story is more than just another fantasy – it’s also the history of Bib’s own origins, and a thoroughly heart-warming fable that gently reminds us that it’s the security and depth of the attachments that hold us together, not where we come from, that is really important.
