Synopsis

Jamie Penguin loves to build things, but he is not too fond of school. It can be quite difficult for a small penguin to sit still and listen for too long in one sitting. Jamie often gets into trouble, both with his teacher for his lack of focus and with his parents for getting injured during his experiments.

One morning Jamie wakes up and decides to build a dog - a big wonderful dog called Arno, with sharp teeth and gorgeous soft fur, a dog he can take to the park, because isn't that what you do with dog? Jamie has heard that dogs love nature and also he is a bit concerned that Arno poos on the floor - best off to the park then...

Lovely detailed illustrations by Rasmus Bregnhøi. 

A sequel is now published with the title, Jamie Penguin Builds something that can Fly really High.
