Elevator Pitch Emperor penguins can sing, but Mumbles, a young penguin, can’t although he can dance. He determines to find out why the penguins don’t get any fish any more and his quest leads to a number of adventures and brushes with the Antarctic carnivors.
Content Lots of singing of popular songs with syncophated accompaniment and dancing by massed penguins. Impressive depictions of the Antarctic environment.
A View A nice idea which may appeal to the young, but not much in it for adults. I would probably have abandoned it had it not been for this blog.
