Peg + Cat The Penguin Problem
Written by Jennifer Oxley & Billy Aronson

Peg and Cat are at the South Pole preparing to watch the ski race at the Animal Winter Games. Suddenly they spy the Penguins zooming downhill. CRASH! The Penguins keep slamming into things So they all try again, with Peg shouting directions each time they come to a hurdle. “Go over Go under Go in between ” But the Penguins still have no clue, because they don t know what over, under, and in between mean. Luckily, Cat points out some directional arrows to follow!
