#035 petra the rockhopper penguin


"Petra is a meticulous and conscientious penguin with one big contradiction – she struggles to fly the nest more mornings than not. With her leather jacket on and naturally blond mop-top, she’s a penguin with the looks and talent to make waves. That she isn’t a lark annoys no one more than herself, and it’s easy to imagine her self-chastisement about not being an early bird as she applies her make-up in the rear-view mirror on the long commute to work each day." (Kerry Lord, Edward's Menagerie Birds, 2015)
