Penguin, shouted Tom, penguin... please.....pretty please nice and kind Malcolm....might I take one of those home in the van with me....even just for a little while. 'NO'. 'Why not.
Not very much happened on the journey from Olney to Milton Keynes and then the M1.
It was twenty minutes later than planned that the mini-bus drew away from the centre; packed with excitement, dreams and anticipation.
Tom had dreams of his own but couldn't explain his dreams to anyone. He did know that he wanted to be free and to run with the penguins; or even have one of his own.
