He finds himself in quite the pickle because he, too, struggles to make his dream come true.

Hoping to soar like all of the other birds in the sky, Higgins goes on a hunt for the perfect solution. What could do the trick? Could a tall mountain and quick wings be the answer? With the assistance of his best friend Otis, Higgins learns what it means to try, try, try again.

Readers will laugh as Higgins makes attempts to be the first penguin in the air and cheer him on just as he is about to give up forever. Our dreams may not happen when and how we want them to, but Higgins teaches us the value of perseverance and teamwork. We can do anything we set our minds to.
