Pinquo is a fairy penguin, who can swim, skip and dive faster than the blink of an eye.
When Pinquo is wounded, the children Kirsty and Tim take him to Dr Piper, and they all look after Pinquo until he is ready to go to sea.
Later the penguin with the droopy walk and kinky flipper comes back into their lives, with his new family.
When disaster strikes Sickle Bay, Pinquo leads a mad stampede of a thousand frenzied penguins, to save the townspeople.
Little Pinquo is a hero.
