Pipkin, the little penguin, has lots of questions. But most of all he would like to know how big a million is! The ten fish caught for him by his mum make no million! A million of fish is more than Pipkin could ever eat. After Pipkin has pondered on this for a while, he sets off to find a million. Along the way he meets a lot of penguins warming one another.
But neither one hundred penguins nor one thousand snow flakes discovered by Pipkin and a seal pup make a million. But where can Pipkin find one? Tired and with cold feet he disappointedly goes home. Today, he has found ten fish, one hundred penguins, one thousand snow flakes and a new friend. But where is the million he is so eager to find? But Pipkin’s mum knows exactly where to spot it!
