Unlike his the rest of his companions at the South Pole, Jasper the penguin believes there is a greater world beyond the edge of the ice. He is proved right when he finds himself aboard an ocean liner in the company of the rarest of birds, the Kakapo, whose main trait is that when frightened she swells up like a balloon. Along with Emma, the captain’s daughter, Jasper becomes embroiled in a rescue mission to save the Kakapo’s eggs from the menacing Dr Block and his sidekick Rolf who plan to use them to enhance ‘Blocks Best Lemonade’, which when drunk by children renders them too afraid to disobey their parents for fear of enduring the same fate as the Kakapo. A good story well told and dubbed and very nicely animated (no CGI here). Five-year-old Alice and I both enjoyed it.
