Penguin the Magpie is a global social media sensation with over 113k followers on Instagram. People the world over have fallen in love with the stunning and deeply personal images of this rescued bird and her human family.
 
But there is far more to Penguin's story than meets the eye. This is a true story of hope and courage. It begins with a shocking accident, in which Cameron's wife, Sam, suffers a near fatal fall that leaves her paralysed and deeply depressed. Into their lives comes Penguin, an injured magpie chick abandoned after she fell from her nest.
 
Penguin's rescue and the incredible joy and strength she gives Sam and all those who helped her survive demonstrates that, however bleak things seem, compassion, friendship and support can come from unexpected quarters, ensuring there are always better days ahead. This plucky little magpie reminds us all that, no matter how lost, fragile or damaged we feel, accepting the love of others and loving them in return will help to make us whole.

    A personal story of despair and hope that will capture your heart. The beautiful photography not only delights, but gives some insight into the plight of this remarkable family. A touching book with an essence that lingers long after the last page. I have gifted multiple copies to family and friends.

    :: Spoiler Alert ::

    A heartbreaking real glimpse at how your life can change in a second. An emotional roller coaster with highest of highs and lows which leave you feeling engaged to the very last page. I would highly recommend this book. An easy read in terms of length complemented by gorgeous photos but such a sad story told with such emotion and honesty.

  • Beautiful, personal story
