Penguin the Magpie

The Odd Little Bird Who Saved a Family

Description

THE INSPIRATION FOR THE NETFLIX FILM PENGUIN BLOOM

“A triumph that will make your heart soar” (Sy Montgomery, author of The Soul of an Octopus), this true story follows a family’s journey of recovery, hope, and courage as they nurse an injured magpie back to health—from the New York Times bestselling author of The Blue Day Book.

When Sam Bloom suffers a near fatal fall during a vacation, she is left paralyzed and deeply depressed. One of their three sons, reeling from the tragic accident, discovers an injured magpie chick abandoned after she had fallen from her nest. The boys name the bird Penguin, for her black-and-white plumage. As they nurse Penguin back to health, the incredible joy, playfulness, and strength she exudes fortify the family and especially lift Sam’s spirits.

“A unique and remarkable insight into a family dealing with tragedy and finding their way through it with love, courage, and hope” (Naomi Watts), Penguin the Magpie reminds us all that, no matter how lost, fragile, or damaged we feel, accepting the love of others and loving them in return will help to make us whole.
