WHERE THE HEART IS

Written by Irma Gold and published by EK, June 2021

Where the Heart Is was inspired by the extraordinary true story of a sick Magellanic penguin washed up on an island beach near Rie de Janeiro. He was rescued by a man called Joao, who nursed him back to health and unwittingly formed a lifelong friendship.

 

Poignant, moving, funny and heartfelt, Dindim and Joao's story is a celebration of friendship and nature. It explores the deep bond that can form between humans and animals, and encourages children to think more about the incredible animals who share out world.
