Tom Michell lives in Cornwall, England. At the tender age of sixty-four, he wrote The Penguin Lessons. This is his first book.
"I loved this book, and you will, too! It's as charming, heartwarming, and surprising as a penguin on a roof terrace. What's more, The Penguin Lessons teaches an important truth: that a single act of compassion can be repaid a thousand-fold."--Sy Montgomery, author of The Good Good Pig and the National Book Award finalist The Soul of an Octopus
"[Tom Michell's] tone suits the material perfectly. . . . You believe every word. . . . No fool, this penguin. No fools, these publishers, who have unleashed such a delightful and charming book just in time for Christmas."--Daily Mail (U.K.)
"Heart-warming is a wholly inadequate phrase to describe this captivating story that is pure delight from beginning to end."--The Bookseller (U.K.)
