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.

However, Mondays are quite different - on those days, Jamie jumps out of bed to get to school in a flash, because in the first lessons he has "Crafts and Design" and in Britta's lessons everything is allowed and everything is possible. Good thing, because on the weekend, Jamie watched a brilliant program about rockets and he is dead-set on building one for himself ...

Lovely detailed illustrations by Rasmus Bregnhøi. 

The sequel to the popular Jamie Penguin Builds a Dog named Arno.
