Product Description

Percy's Adventures at Mercy Hospital for Injured Birds is a delightful story of a little pink penguin with a broken leg and his adventures at the bird hospital. Percy is thrust into a new and scary place-the hospital-where he meets a number of fascinating birds with a whole assortment of maladies. Between Percy's mispronunciation of words and Marlene's persistent repetition of what everyone says, you'll love this hilarious story of the struggles that a little pink penguin from Antarctica goes through while recuperating at the hospital. Percy learns important lessons like how to invite Jesus into your heart, how to pray even for your enemies, how to read your Bible and learn from it, how to know the Holy Spirit, and how to give good gifts. He struggles with issues that every child can relate to from being lonely and scared to dealing with bullies. Percy's story and the lessons that he learns are simple enough for any child ages to understand.

Publisher's Description

A pink penguin, a wise old owl, and a whole flock of birds learn about God's love. Percy's Adventures is the delightful story of Percy, a pink penguin with a broken leg, and his escapades at the Mercy Hospital for Injured Birds. You'll also meet Marlene, a hilarious macaw who repeats what everyone says; Jerry, a mean blue jay with anger management issues; Calli, a California quail whose fears render her timid; Roger, a rooster (with a very famous relative) who can't seem to crow at the right time; and a number of other friendly, fascinating birds healing from various maladies. Along with Percy, you will learn about Jesus from Oliver the Owl and Zelda the Quetzal as they gently but wisely explain how to be a Christian. While Percy and his new friends confront many problems-from loneliness to dealing with bullies to stealing-children will subtly see that they, like these comical birds, can make good choices that please the Lord. Sue Blake and Terri Plummer are Christian writers who live in Limington, Maine, with their families. They have written The Pink Penguin Explosion: Drama Games and Christian Skits for All Ages, Volumes I & II; drama for Great Bible Reef VBS; and Drama and Crafts for Akaloo. The characters in Percy's Adventures reflect the many facets of Sue and Terri's personalities, from Calli's insecurities to Flo's haughtiness, with, hopefully, a touch of Oliver's wisdom.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  What Terri and I really hope to "gain" from this project is to hear from children who have followed the example of Percy, our main character, and have turned to Jesus for forgiveness of their sins and invited Him into their hearts. To such wonderful news, we would respond: "For now we really live, since you are standing firm in the Lord" (1 Thessalonian 3:8). Please let us know of this wonderful news by emailing us at teatime@pinkpenguinexplosion.com. /Sb

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  Percy’s Adventures is the delightful story of Percy, a pink penguin with a broken leg, and his escapades at the Mercy Hospital for Injured Birds. You’ll also meet Marlene, a hilarious macaw who repeats what everyone says; Jerry, a mean blue jay with anger management issues; Calli, a California quail whose fears render her timid; Roger, a rooster (with a very famous relative) who can’t seem to crow at the right time; and a number of other friendly, fascinating birds healing from various maladies. Along with Percy, you will learn about Jesus from Oliver the Owl and Zelda the Quetzal as they gently but wisely explain how to be a Christian. While Percy and his new friends confront many problems — from loneliness to dealing with bullies to stealing – children will subtly see that they, like these comical birds, can make good choices that please the Lord.
