Every book tells a story . . . And the 70 titles in the Pocket Penguins series are emblematic of the renowned breadth and quality that formed part of the original Penguin vision in 1935 and that continue to define our publishing today. Together, they tell one version of the unique story of Penguin Books. Redmond O'Hanlon is a naturalist, writer and explorer firmly in the nineteenth-century mould who disappears on hazardous-but-hilarious quests in search of near-mythical beasts. Penguin have had the pleasure of publishing his adventures in paperback from the beginning of his career, and Borneo and the Poet takes us right back to O'Hanlon's first trip to the jungle with the unnerved poet James Fenton.
