Meantime his teacher, Mrs. Wimpydimple, is in the bus asking the students about their favorite animals, they all say who their favorite is, and of course Splat's is "penguins."
At the zoo Splat can't wait he is ready to see the penguins, as the are going around a mysterious paper airplane comes zooming around, is it a bird?
