    1. Angels come in different forms, truly. Sometimes they even meet each other and BAM! we get a wonderfully inspiring book of one family struggle and ability to rebuild what they feared lost.I wish all the humanly attainable strength to the author and her family and thank them for this wonderful depiction of beauty ans resilience as they are.

    2. 4.5 Such a heartbreaking and yet beautiful little book. A mother of three sons, a beloved wife and an ardent traveler, Sam Bloom suffers a terrible accident that will leave her paralyzed from the chest down. A baby magpie that has fallen from her nest, wing broken, is taken home by the family to nurse and soon becomes an integral part of the Bloom family. Despite the tragedy which is of course horrible, there is so much love in this book. It shines through, in the photographs, which are gorgeous [...]

    3. Everything about this book is just beautiful. It’s part animal story, part family struggle against awful circumstances, part motivational tale, part love story.Cameron Bloom’s love for his wife bleeds through in the writing of this book, and the perfect use of pictures ensured that, before long, this reviewer was more than a little teary. But it’s not all doom and gloom, in fact there are plenty of laughs to be had, and the overall feeling of positivity and being able to overcome the worst [...]

    4. Just one look at the cover and I knew I was going to fall in love with this book. It has many themes with love, the amazing power of the human spirit to overcome the worst life can throw at us and how saviors can come into our lives in the most unlikely of ways and sizes.Told mostly through the words of Cameron Bloom, we learn about as a teenager falling in love with the girl he would make his wife called Sam. Soon they had a family with three beautiful boys and as far as all could see the world [...]

    5. 4.5 stars, only lacking toward the 5 in that it is a book of fewer words than I would wont. The photos are 5 star. The narrator is also the photographer and it's his family's story. Extremely tragic and yet survived. As a family and with the help of an animal who assisted and inspired within the process of taking every day as it came, when they could not be taken. And also in those days of agony, which still are.Penguin is a Magpie rescued from an Australian parking lot by one of their 3 sons as [...]

    6. Cameron Bloom and his wife Sam had travelled all over the world before their children arrived – Cameron was (and still is) an exceptional photographer and had met Sam one day after surfing at a Sydney beach when she was working in the café he visited. Once their three boys were old enough, they decided to travel to Thailand for a long overdue holiday. It was during that holiday that Sam had an almost catastrophic fall – one which almost ended her life; it certainly ended the way of life she [...]

    7. This book is really just a series of photos of an Australia family coming to terms with their mother being crippled and how the simple act of adopting and raising an abandoned magpie chick changed all of that.But there is so much more to this book. I knew of the project long before it was turned in to a book let alone one that had international distribution. The fact that this part wild magpie took to the family and as much adopted them as they did it is incredible but the healing (and I much as [...]

    8. I've followed Penguin on Instagram for quite a while nowIt was good to get more backstory about the family and what they have been through.

    9. I had been following the associated instagram for a while, and magpies are my favorite bird, so I was excited to read the book. I didn't actually know much of the backstory about the accident or who was involved, so reading this was like learning a new brand new story, and it added so much more meaning to this family's story of an odd little bird they adopted. It was very moving, the photographs are beautiful, and I appreciated the note from Sam at the end to balance out the whole book.

    10. "Les anges se cachent sous les formes les plus étranges".Cette phrase résume à elle seule tout le livre et donne le ton de la formidable histoire que nous raconte cette famille, sauvée de l'indicible par cette petite pie tombée de nulle part.Récit d'un témoignage, poignant, tendre, plein de larmes et de sourires, ce livre se découpe en trois grandes parties. Dans un premier temps, c'est Cameron le père de famille qui nous raconte son histoire : sa rencontre avec Sam, leur vie de voyageu [...]

    11. Oh my a colleague passed me this at lunchtime, and I devoured it while I ate my lunch. It's beyond words. Beautiful. Heartbreaking. Inspiring. It took me on a rollercoaster of emotions, all in the space of 30 minutes. On the surface it's the true story of the young magpie rescued by the Bloom family (and named Penguin, because of her B&W colouring). It's also the story of Sam Bloom, recently disabled in an accident, and confined to a wheelchair for the rest of her life. Does Sam save Penguin [...]

    12. A charming and inspiring read that helps put things in perspective and gives us hope. It reveals the enduring power of the human spirit and shows that animals, of any kind, can make a huge impact on our lives and help us to heal. It certainly has made me look at magpies in a completely different light and is a timely reminder not to take anything or anyone for granted. An emotional but worthwhile journey, Penguin Bloom will remain with you long after you turn the last page. With heartwarming pho [...]

    13. " Sie entschied sich für uns. Nicht weil es ihr an Mut gefehlt hätte, der eigenen Auslöschung ins Auge zu blicken, sondern weil sie den viel größeren Mut hatte, weiterzuleben."S.97

    14. 4.5 stars. Beautiful pictures. Painful but wonderfully written story of the terrible thing that happened to this family and how Penguin the Magpie helped them through some of their worst moments.

    15. In realtà 4.5Non c'è nulla di brutto che si possa dire su un libro così pieno di vita. Sì, di vita.La storia della famiglia Bloom è triste, ma allo stesso tempo vuole insegnare ad andare avanti nonostante tutti gli ostacoli che possiamo trovare nel nostro cammino.Mamma Bloom, ovvero Sam, resta paralizzata in seguito ad un incidente e per tanto, tanto tempo medita sulla fine di tutte le sue sofferenze. A volte restare vivi può non sembrare una benedizione, quando non puoi più fare nulla da [...]

    16. Flöjtkråkan Penguin dyker upp hos familjen Bloom, i en tid då de har det väldigt tungt. Mamman Sam var med om en fruktansvärd olycka på deras semesterresa och blev förlamad. Penguin Bloom är en fantastisk liten bok. En riktig pärla bland böcker. Inte ofta jag läser en bok som jag blir så berörd av, som jag blev av denna. Jag blev både arg, ledsen, rörd och glad utav den. Flöjtkråkan Penguin kommer in i familjens liv och förändrar det helt. Penguin blir ett oväntat stort stöd [...]

    17. I don't know how one could not love this book. Sam Bloom was on vacation with her husband and three sons when a freak accident left her paralyzed. One of the sons found a baby magpie which had been blown out of its nest. The family raises the bird which helps in so many ways recuperate all. If you know someone with a spinal cord injury or another devastating diagnosis, this is a lovely book to share with them.

    18. A sweet and moving story about a family hit by hard times and saved by a magpie they named Penguin. The photography in this book is stunning and it is matched beautifully by the words.

    19. I'm lost for words. I've never read something so inspiring and adorable. Penguin is the cutest and I love their family, so full of love.

    20. I was happy to pick up Penguin Bloom when I saw it on the shelf at my library. I'd seen some pictures from the book about and knew that they were wonderful, and maybe even a news story about a crazy little magpie called Penguin and the lucky family who found her after she fell out of her nest on Sydney's Northern Beaches. It's a funny book. An odd size, and an odd formatting, but it works. Cameron Bloom's beautiful pictures make it like a coffee table book, and Bradley Trevor Greive spins his us [...]

    21. 4.5 stars. Beautiful pictures. Moving words. For those familiar with the Instagram account, this book puts lots of the photos in one place and gives you the story behind it, which is raw, heartbreaking, hopeful, and full of love. The text carefully complements the shots, and the production is exceptional. Only a little repetitive towards the end, and it left me wanting to know more about Penguin. These are very tiny tiny things. A beautiful artefact.

    22. I really loved this book (which I listened to on audio cassette). I could relate to how lives were changing, my only peeve was how little Penguin actually featured in the story - but I guess it's hard to emphasize how important small things can be in the real lives of real people. In particular, the letter from Sam at the end of the audio book was life-changing.

    23. Beautiful! Such a hard story told so well - honestly and with so much love. The photos of Penguin and the family illustrate the book perfectly.

    24. Beautiful photography, this bird touched their lives incredibly in a time when they needed it, I couldnot put it down, I know I'll go back to this book constantly to give me hope.

    25. Ein Buch, das seht zu Herzen geht. Die Fotos, die das Buch durchziehen, sind alle auf den nebenstehenden Text abgestimmt und der Drang nicht aufgeben zu wollen, ist bemerkenswert.

    26. Une très belle leçon de vie et de courage. Un livre plein d'humanité, de beauté et d'humilité.Un vécu qui servira sans doute à d'autres qui traversent des épreuves. Des photos qui collent au texte qui les accompagnent au plus près. C'est touchant sans être tire larmes. C'est vibrant d'émotions. Ça parle d'amour, de don de soi, de bonheur simple, d'acceptation, de déception, de combat, de nature, de liberté, de voyage, de se surpasser, de s'adapter. J'ai souri, ri, été émue aux l [...]
