"It's no good sir! It's an ice planet!"

OK, that's only funny if you're a Stargate fan (and maybe not even then).

Jack and Annie are in Antarctica. Why? They need to cheer-up Merlin! And what better to cheer a guy up with but a baby penguin named Penny? (yes there are 3 other secrets of happiness gathered in earlier books and you can be happy caring for anyone/thing, not just a fuzzy little penguin who says "Peep!")

This book was particularly fun for the Daddy-voices. Aside from a cast of international scientists and journaists to give funny accents to, we have Nancy. nancy is the bus-driver/tour guide, and in my mind she is forever speaking in that kinda-too-loud, kinda slow tone of the tour guide who's trying to be heard by the folks in the back over the traffic noise (or helicopter noise in this case). "we're walking, we're walking, and we're stopping..."
