520    "A unique and moving real-life story of the extraordinary 
       bond between a young teacher and a penguin, this book will
       delight readers who loved Marley & Me, Dewey the Library 
       Cat, The Good Good Pig, and any book by Jon Katz. In 1975,
       twenty-three-year-old Englishman Tom Michell follows his 
       wanderlust to Argentina, where he becomes assistant master
       at a prestigious boarding school. But Michell's adventures
       really begin when, on a weekend in Uraguay, he rescues a 
       penguin covered in oil from an ocean spill, cleans the 
       bird up, and attempts to return him to the sea. But the 
       penguin refuses to leave his rescuer's side. "That was the
       moment at which he became my penguin, and whatever the 
       future held, we'd face it together," says Michell in this 
       charming memoir. Michell names the penguin Juan Salvador 
       ("John Saved"), but Juan Salvador, as it turns out, is the
       one who saves Michell. After Michell smuggles the bird 
       back to Argentina and into his campus apartment, word 
       spreads about the young Englishman's unusual roommate. 
       Juan Salvador is suddenly the center of attention--as 
       mascot of the rugby team, confidant to the dorm 
       housekeeper, co-host of Michell's parties, and an 
       unprecedented swimming coach to a shy boy. Even through 
       the collapse of the Peronist government and amid the 
       country's economic and political strife, Juan Salvador 
       brings joy to everyone around him--especially Michell, who
       considers the affectionate animal a compadre and kindred 
       spirit. Witty and heartwarming, The Penguin Lessons is a 
       classic in the making, a story that is both absurd and 
       wonderful, exactly like Juan Salvador"--|cProvided by 
520    "Whether as rugby team mascot or assistant swimming coach,
       the penguin known as Juan Salvador touches and transforms 
       everyone he encounters, including Tom Michell, the young 
       teacher who finds him and rescues him from an oil spill 
       disaster. After a time, Juan Salvador (meaning "the saved 
       one") receives a new name: Juan Salvado, or "the savior." 
       Set against the turbulent world of political unrest of 
       1970s Argentina, this multi-layered true story is a 
       testament and tribute to animals and will no doubt 
       resonate with the people who love them"--|cProvided by
