Rocky the Rockhopper Penguin loves his home at the zoo, lots of friends and no predators in sight, but his wife Rubina longs for one thing; a chick of her own. When the zoo delivery service makes a mistake, Rocky seizes the opportunity to make her happy … but there is a big, fluffy, black and white problem.

As Rocky and Rubina struggle to help their new son fit into the colony they soon realize that our differences are what make us special.
