I was hoping against all hope that the penguin would survive because of this moment he had a name, and his name is the beginning of an affair that will last a lifetime’ Tom Michell is in his crazy years: only the only one, Tom Michell.He has a plane ticket to South America, a teaching position in a prestigious Argentinean boarding school, and endless summer vacation.There’s even a motorcycle, Che Guevara style.What he doesn’t need a petWhat he doesn’t really need is a penguin animal.Together against turbulent Argentina years after the collapse of the Peronist regime’s corruption, this is the touching story of Juan Salvador, the penguin, saved by Tom from an oil slick in Uruguay, a few days before a new term.When the bird refuses to leave Tom, the young teacher has no choice but to smuggle it across the border, through customs, and back to school.If it’s like the rugby mascot of the team, the housekeeper confidant, the host of Tom’s games or the most flamboyant swimming coach in world history, Juan Salvador transforms the life of all he meets, especially that of the boy’s nostalgia of school boy.And as for Tom, he discovers in Juan Salvador a compadre not like the othersThe Penguin Lessons is a unique and moving true story that captured the imagination of the whole world – for all those who dreamed like a child that they could one day talk to animals.
