Penguin Island by Anatole France( )

9 editions published between 1924 and 2016 in English and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When a bumbling holy man mistakenly baptizes a colony of penguins, God endows the animals with souls and their formerly peaceful community declines into a maelstrom of violence and sin. This witty allegory lampoons French history from ancient to modern times, taking satirical swipes at socialists, royalists, industrialists, militarists, and even the Dreyfus affair, and concluding with a remarkably prescient view of the future. Indeed, more than a hundred years after its initial publication, the story's insights into politics and society remain enduring relevant. Poet, novelist, and journalist Anatole France (1844-1924) received the Nobel Prize in 1921 in recognition of his literary achievements. His writings reflect an ironic and skeptical point of view, and many of his works were placed on the Roman Catholic Church's Index of Forbidden Books. This edition of Penguin Island is enhanced with the original black-and-white images by noted illustrator Frank C. Pape

Florian treads close to damnation and is saved only when Satan and the angel Michael conspire..." -- The Encyclopedia of Fantasy
