How Penguins Save Television

Not long after the beginning of time there was television. Personified as giant turtles, TVs have evolved along with other animals of this imagined world where technology and the natural have merged. This story explores what it means for society as it attempts to evolve with the aid of science and innovation. What is the place of the penguins in a world without TV? How are symbiotic relationships cultivated with modern media? This book engages children with the natural world around them through technological modifications, such as the jetpack. Follow the penguins as the story unfolds, inviting the reader to make connections on the relationship between the visual and the written word: the space they both occupy and transform.
