The No.1 International Bestseller - a life-affirming true story of how a magpie chick helped one family overcome tragedy
They saved a little bird …
And in return she saved them too
After a near-fatal fall left Sam Bloom paralysed, no one - not her husband Cameron, nor their three boys - could reach her in the darkest days of her struggle. But everything changed when a new member of the family unexpectedly landed in their lives: an injured magpie chick abandoned after she fell from her nest, whom they named Penguin Bloom.
Powerful and tender, Penguin Bloom is a beautifully written account of how compassion, friendship and family can come from unexpected places.
