Stephanie Ward is the author of Arabella and the Magic Pencil, illustrated by Shaney Hyde, published by EK Books in September 2019. Her next picture book is due for release in 2020, but it's all under wraps at the moment so stay tuned for details!

After many years in marketing, Stephanie now spends her time writing sweet, silly and sidesplitting stories for children. Too old to blame it on youth, she still hasn't settled down and spends her spare time traveling. Originally from Spokane, Washington in the U.S., Stephanie's wanderlust inspired her to visit all seven continents, live in four countries and become a citizen of three. At present, she can be found in London, England with her husband and young son.

When I encountered Emperor Penguins in the extreme climate of Antarctica, I wondered why they never migrated somewhere with warmer weather. A couple of months later, when visiting the Galapagos Islands, I saw the darling Galapagos Penguins playing in the warm ocean waters and frolicking on the beach. And there was the premise for Wally the Warm-Weather Penguin: What if an Emperor Penguin found out there was a colony of penguins living in a much warmer place?

You may not think of penguins when you think of Australia but there is a "little"-known penguin, called a Fairy Penguin or Little Blue Penguin that can be found on southern shores in Australia and New Zealand. They are the smallest penguin in the world. Wally will meet some fascinating new creatures Down Under, so stay tuned for the next edition later this year.

Thanks so much for the question, Carmela.(less)
