Penguin Pete found something interesting to explore. A ship! On board e meets a little mouse named Horatio and they become friends. Pete decides he really misses the sea and wants to take Horatio with him. Horatio can't swim so they decide to put him in a life boat and let Pete push him. The lifeboat fills with water and Pete has to save Horatio.

It's a cute little story. For my guy the highlight was the ship.

In this book, Pete finds an abandoned ship he gets on and looks around. He finds a mouse that lives there. They become friends and encounter different adventures until mouse almost drowns because he doesn't know how to swim. Pete says next time he'll teach him to swim. The illustrations in this book were nice, probably nicer than the story itself.
This book had cute illustrations and a simple plot. It's a gentle story about friends and not needing to know how to do everything.

We actually got this book translated in Spanish. It is adorable and teaches some good words for parts of a ship

Pete enjoys the ship that Horatio has. When they go in the water, Horatio's lifeboat is sinking, but Pete helps him back to the ship since he can't swim.
