Summary

Logan is an epic kid with an epic imagination-and an amazing imaginary secret identity. When trouble arises at the local zoo, Logan makes a startling change...and as Super Penguin, he soars in and saves the day! Join Logan and his sidekick Giraffey in their very first adventure! This is a very special book, dedicated to raising awareness and acceptance of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The idea of this book came from my son, who is on the autism spectrum. Often, when he became scared or nervous, he would start calling himself a penguin. As time went on, he started to wear a cape and solve 'mysteries' with his stuffed animals. Every time someone would meet him he would say "Hi, my name is Logan, but you can call me "Penguin". Recognizing the empowerment he felt as his alter ego "Penguin", I felt his story needed to be told to encourage other "penguins" and super hero kids to embrace their differences and to share these unique and yes Autistic gifts. So sit back, relax, and experience an adventure with us!
