Most penguins are happy to eat fish everyday, but not Penguin. He yearns for something sweet, something tasty, something covered in pink icing. So Penguin journeys to the Northern Hemisphere in search of a cupcake. Along the way he encounters Walrus and Polar Bear, who don't know anything about cupcakes, but sure have a think or two to say about Penguin's storytelling skills.
