The third title in the series, Plume: Festival Seeker is the most gorgeous children's picture book celebrating – what else? – 'celebrations' themselves! Throughout the year, the world is plump with astonishing festivals and Plume loves them all! Journey alongside this adventurous, color-loving penguin as he jumps aboard the Albatross Express to take part in a range of enchanting events across the globe. Stare in wonder at the Up Helly Aa fire festival in Scotland and the freaky Day of Masquerade in Costa Rica. Get messy at the squelchy Boryeong Mud Festival in South Korea or La Tomatina tomato battle in Spain. Throw a rainbow of color during Holi in India or enjoy a celebration of gifts, sweets and kindness at Eid al-Fitr in Algeria. A year of wonder and excitement culminates in Plume's favorite festival of them all – Christmas. Will his penguin friends join him for the celebrations?

"One of the most important things we can gift our children is an appreciation of culture, diversity and celebration. Plume: Festival Seeker is a culmination of all of these things, but it's also a testament to connection, especially with those who experience lives so different to our own." -Tania McCartney, Kids' Book Review
