Product Details


Once again, zoologist Davies’ enthusiasm for the natural world and her ability to shed light on it for a young audience are on full display. . . . A moving story of resilience in a changing world.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

As winter sets in Antarctica, the emperor penguins begin their trip to the solidly frozen ice of Halley Bay, where they will find a mate and safely raise their chicks. Young readers may be somewhat familiar with the generalities: dad takes care of the baby, mom goes off to hunt, and baby is a cute ball of fluff. Davies, however, brings in details that give a sharper picture of the penguins’ experience in this harsh climate.
—The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
