Penguin the Magpie is an extraordinary story of hope, courage and recovery. When Cameron Bloom’s wife, Sam, suffers a near fatal fall that leaves her paralyzed and deeply depressed, the whole family reels from the impact. One of their three sons finds an injured magpie chick who has fallen from its nest and the boys name it Penguin after its black and white plumage. As they nurse Penguin back to health, the bird’s incredible joy, playfulness and strength fortify the family and help to raise Sam’s spirits. Penguin reinforces for the family that however bleak things may seem, compassion, friendship and support from unexpected places help ensure there will always be better days ahead. No matter how lost, fragile or damaged we may be, accepting the love of others and loving them in return can help make us whole again.
