Marley Me with a penguin Well sort of I don t know about you but I m a bit peeved at how this has been roped in for Christmas advertising on Goodreads It would indeed make a good holiday gift for an animal lover but this emphasizes the twee aspects of what is otherwise a sweet if slight story about the author keeping a Magellanic penguin as a pet while he was teaching in an Argentina boarding school in the 1970sMichell from England was in his twenties when he set off on his South American adventure During school holidays he traveled as far as he could get on a motorbike and it was on one such break to Uruguay that he came across an awful oil spill on Punta del Este beach All he could see was dead penguins until he realized one was still alive He named the little fellow Juan Salvador and smuggled him back into Argentina to live on his bedroom terrace and delight the schoolboys Before that though comes the uproarious process of cleaning the oil sodden bird a feat achieved with a bidet a string bag and plenty of dish detergent Pre Google days you see This was by far my favorite passage of the bookIt s touching to see Juan Salvado making friends at the school and helping an outcast named Diego Gonzales come out of his shell through swimming in the later parts of the book However I m always hesitant about anthropomorphizing which Michell does here when imagining the penguin s replies in italics Plus the language can be a bit stiff I would have dated this to the 1950s by the speech and there s precious little evidence of the political upheaval in Argentina at the time the book is set All the same stories of connection across species boundaries are always pleasant to read and the whimsical illustrations are charming

I saw this book on many friends pages and I felt this was a book I must read for myself Penguin Lessons is 64 year old Michell s recollections of his time 40 years earlier as a house counselor in an Argentine boarding school and importantly the life lessons he learned from Juan Salvado the penguin In his 20s Michell desired to see the world I suspect many people do as a means of finding oneself He decided to apply for a position as a house counselor at a boarding school in Argentina on the other side of the world from his rural English home A perk of Michell s job is that he had much time to travel throughout South America On one journey he explored Punta del Este Uruguay and found a beach full of penguins destroyed by an oil spill Only one penguin miraculously survived and Michell decided to adopt him and so named the bird Juan Salvado saved The rest of this short gem of a memoir is the relationship between Michell and Juan Salvado Without giving much away Michell writes of how Juan Salvado fits into the day to day life at the school If a person was not a penguin lover before reading this book they will most likely become one after reading it A short uplifting read
