Christmas with Norky, The Adventure Begins
By Steve Allgeier
Illustrated by Beatrice Favereau
Visikid Books
November 2007
40 pages

Santa is far too busy delivering presents to keep up with his Naughty & Nice List. So he calls on his flying friend Norky, who is part penguin and part eagle – a Peneagle. Norky’s special job is to look for kids doing good deeds and practicing kindness all year round. However, Norky knows that no kid is perfect. That’s why he created the “FIX-IT” card, which gives a kid a second chance in case he has a bad day.  

Allgeier’s rhyming verse brings to mind The Night Before Christmas with a gentle lesson about doing your best. Favereau’s attractive cartoon-like character illustrations make this an inviting tale for pre-schoolers who love to make Christmas last all year long.

Norky also has a companion website where kids can join the Norky Adventure Club, view photos of the live-action Norky character, and check out Norky gear.

This first book in the Norky adventure series makes a great gift for kids who are crazy about Christmas.
