Penguins mate for life and Gus and Waldo are happy in their monogamous relationship, but modern life just keeps getting in the way. As the two penguins face the challenges of every-day neuroses - are they thin enough? Beautiful enough? Reading the right magazines? Watching the right programmes? And fulfilling their partner in every way? Successful at work, have enough money and what about that network of friends? - we enjoy the couple's journey through the perils of pop culture and society's obsessions. Things never run quite as smoothly as hoped, but in the end the message is clear - love conquers all, especially when there's a good dose of hanky panky thrown in. With the potential to be a huge cult hit, and perfect for the Christmas market, readers will identify with Gus and Waldo's dilemmas. They will charm the nation and bring a little Antarctic magic to their lives.
