Scott McDermott Illustrated: Christine Anderson

What does a penguin do when confronted with a wish? ‘A Penguin’s Quest’ is a picture book written by Scott McDermott and artistically drawn by Christine Anderson is all about a little penguin named Ingrid who had a wish to do something that penguins do not usually do in their lives. Ingrid has many adventures in this children’s picture book.

Scott and Christine has created a picture book that teaches readers social studies, science and geography, as well as creativity and language. Scott has written this book to create interest in learning new things and new ideas. Christine has drawn pictures that are drawn using vivid and realistic images that really look like photographs. My favorite pictures were the ones with the ski jump and when Ingrid and friends were working on a project. ‘A Penguin’s Quest’ is also a story of making friends and learning more about oneself and seeing how to make various changes in how we do things.


Young readers can take a journey with Ingrid the penguin as she ventures from her home in Antarctica in search of a mythic place where it’s said a penguin can learn to fly in the enthralling children’s tale, A Penguin’s Quest.

Ingrid’s story begins as she heeds advice from some seriously lost NYC pigeons and sets out determined to accomplish something that no other penguin has ever done. A globe-trotting, epic journey ensues, with a cast of colorful characters that includes sea captains, Penn Station rats, a trip inside the NYC pigeon underworld and a ski instructor named Klaus. The mystery of Ingrid’s destination holds the answers as this intrepid penguin is on the verge of a discovery that could rock the penguin world.
