The world may seem big to Monty the penguin, but his personality is bigger. When Monty gets invited to go on an adventure with his favorite human, zookeeper Ellie, he waddles at the chance! From the comfort of his rocky island to the jungles, savannas, and deserts of the Santa Barbara Zoo, Monty meets some of the strongest, slowest, and tallest animals. As he learns that being different is beautiful, he teaches us what it means to accept yourself and others.
