'Down on the ice,
where the penguins parade, and the albatross rides
on the finest wings made,
that's where the penguin who wanted to fly
began an impossible quest for the sky!
Always he tried
and he never stopped trying!
Nor would he ever, until he was flying!'
Ben Brown and Helen Taylor are the author and illustrator of A Booming in the Night, winner of the New Zealand Post Children's Book Awards, Best Picture Book 2006. Here they tell the story of a penguin who refuses to give up in his quest for flight - 'We penguins are birds, we belong in the sky!'
