by Jody Thompson, Kandour




With their dapper black-and-white “outfits,” penguins have long held a particular fascination for people of all ages. They may look comical as they waddle or slide on their bellies across ice and snow, but it’s when they plunge into the icy ocean that they are really in their element. Penguins’ streamlined bodies and flippers are perfectly suited to their aquatic surroundings.

Penguins are not all alike. There are many different breeds, ranging in size from the diminutive Little Blue to the regal Emperor. And not all penguins live in Antarctica!

This lavishly illustrated book is sure to delight readers young and old with informative details of penguins’ life cycle, habitat, diet, and environment. Get up close to these charming inhabitants of the Southern Hemisphere!
