Part of the Mr Penguin series
From the international bestselling creator of Claude comes a hero like no other: Mr Penguin.
Indiana Jones meets Hercule Poirot in this series from Alex T.
Smith. Mr Penguin is boarding a luxury cruise ship. He doesn't like water, and he can't swim, but his friend Colin is performing with the Ladies Choir on board - and anyway, Mr Penguin feels like a rest after some busy Adventuring.
What's more, fish finger sandwiches are apparently available twenty-four hours a day.
Heaven! But despite the glamorous film stars and party atmosphere, Mr Penguin can't help but feel that something shifty is happening on board. And when he befriends a young stowaway with a mystery of her own to solve, he soon finds that Adventures are lying in wait after all ... This is the third Mr Penguin book with plenty of slapstick humour, mystery and adventure.
