Puffin Plunge Excerpt:

The afternoon sun peeked shyly over the horizon, casting a warm glow on the cozy puffin burrow nestled just south of the arctic area of Ahway Island. Inside, a symphony of chirps filled the air. Pearl the puffin stirred, stretching her wings with a satisfied yawn. It had been a lovely afternoon nap, cuddling close to her mate, Pauly, and their baby chick.

“Sleep well, Pearl?” asked Pauly. His feathers were still a bit ruffled from sleep, and this made Pearl smile.

“It was a nice nap,” sighed Pearl. Then, she heard a peep peep peep coming from beneath them. Pearl looked down. Their little chick gazed up at her with bright eyes, chirping excitedly, with his mouth open wide. He was hungry!
