The penguin pack are all very content with their lives at the South Pole—they spend their days skating and fishing and playing, and their nights all huddled together to stay warm and cosy. Everything is grand until, one night, the penguin huddle freezes solid! The pack are all stuck together, with no way to separate. None of their South Pole friends can get them apart, so little Pipsqueak suggests they travel to the big city for help.
The city is full of all different animals, but no one can unfreeze the huddle! The pack are about ready to give up, but Pipsqueak has another idea: surely the Doctopus can to help! The frozen pack make it to the doc’s office just in time—but it turns out they have solved their problem all on their own…all that moving and running in the warm city melted their ice!

The rest of the pack promise they will always be there to keep Pipsqueak safe and warm, and in the meantime they can always have big, cosy penguin cuddle!
