About this title


Filbert is a penguin, who was flying quite happily across the polar sky until a seagull tells him that penguins are not supposed to be able to fly. As a result Filbert crashes down to the ground with embarrassment. A friendly seal appears and reassures him that there are plenty of things that he CAN do better than anyone else, so he shouldn't be so fed up about not being able to fly. However, as soon as Filbert is ready to accept this, he has a big surprise - having explained that being able to fly isn't that important, the seal then flies off into the sky! A cheerful story about courage, confidence and compliments that perhaps aren't always helpful!
