The Queen's new carriage, covered in gold and set with diamonds, vanishes. It is whisked into other realms, by supernatural energy. The Little penguins, and their mythological friends face perils dusted with drama and sprinkled with magic, to get the coach safely home to London. The Magic Carriage ventures to times, places and people, with very un-boring history.
The Coachmaker, one of the last of his kind in the world, is a treasure hunter of unusual objects. After recycling a hundred bits and pieces collected from famous inventions, buildings, ships, aircraft and the like, he decorated the interior of the Queen's new coach with them. Here a bit of Spitfire, there a piece of Shakespeare's mulberry tree. Though his collection seems far-fetched, this part of the story is true. These artefacts possess supernatural energy, which draws the magic carriage and its unlikely travelling companions into realms not always of the here and now. Happenstance unites them in a mission to guard the Magic Carriage and get it safely home to London. Five little Australian penguins, The Lion and the Unicorn, The Harp of Ireland, The Goddess Britannia, St. George and his Dragon, each play their part to protect crown property, as they face perils beyond their wildest dreams. Imagine the Queen's response when her beautiful new coach arrives unexpectedly in London packed with little penguins. Let the Magic Carriage convey you and your loved ones, for generations to come, into a timeless fairy penguin tale, where blended facts and fiction brings to life some truly wonderful people, places and mythology from around the globe.
