Penguin Bloom is an extraordinary true story of recovery, hope and courage as one injured bird and her human family learn to heal and celebrate life, featuring the gorgeous photography of Cameron Bloom and a captivating narrative by New York Times bestselling author of The Blue Day Book Bradley Trevor Greive.

People around the world have fallen in love with Penguin the Magpie, a global social media sensation, and her adventures with her human family. But there is far more to Penguin's story than meets the eye.

It all begins when Sam, Cameron Bloom's wife, suffers a near fatal fall that leaves her paralysed and deeply depressed. One of their three sons, reeling from the tragic accident, discovers an injured magpie chick abandoned after she had fallen from her nest. The boys name the bird Penguin, for her black-and-white plumage.

As they nurse Penguin back to health, the incredible joy, playfulness and strength she exudes fortify the family and especially lift Sam's spirits. Penguin's resilience demonstrates that, however bleak things may seem, compassion, friendship and support can come from unexpected places ensuring there will always be 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.

Winner of the ABIA Illustrated Book of the Year.

The book is soon to be a major motion picture starring Naomi Watts, Andrew Lincoln, Jacki Weaver and Rachel House.

    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
