Based on the book by Lita Judge
"A charming adaptation that supports Penguin's dreams while not ignoring the basic laws of aerodynamics... Simple and straightforward enough to be understood by a 3-year-old, but engaging enough to amuse a parent... The production's biggest boon, however, may be its score."
It's the first day of Flight School, where they teach birds to fly. Penguin has the soul of an eagle and is ready to live on the wind. But he wasn't built to soar, as the other birds constantly remind him. Penguin's spirit won't be grounded. With some friends of a feather, and a little help on the technical parts, Penguin follows his dreams to flip, flap, fly!
