When farmer Swampy Marsh’s wayward dog Oddball causes havoc in the town of Warrnambool yet again, he receives a final warning: Oddball must be kept under control, or else. Meanwhile, Swampy’s daughter Emily is anxious because the penguin sanctuary that she works so hard to protect is under threat. The tiny Little Penguins that have made their home there are declining rapidly in numbers due to fox attacks, and it looks like soon there will be none left. Can Swampy and his granddaughter Libby find a way to help Emily and her penguins, and keep Oddball out of trouble at the same time?

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
