Penguin has got himself into trouble this time!
He had a weak point — this Fortunato — although in other regards he was a man to be respected and even feared. He prided himself on his connoisseurship in wine.
We passed through a range of low arches, descended, passed on, and descending again, arrived at a deep crypt, in which the foulness of the air caused our flambeaux rather to glow than flame.
The Cask of Amontillado, by Edgar Allan Poe

It should be pretty easy to guess what the Penguin is up to in this one…
The super cool people at Penguin English Library have been having a little fun with a penguin figurine and some famous scenes in classic literature. This has been christened Penguin Acts Out.
I’ve been inspired to do the same but I’ve only done a couple so far. Watch this space for my contribution to Penguin Acts Out!
