More about this book - Penguins
A colourful look at the lives of these fascinating flightless birds.
There are seventeen species of penguins and while most live on the coast of Antarctica, others can be found in Australia, New Zealand, Africa and South America. They range from largest, the Emperors, which can easily weigh up to 35 kilos to the smallest, the Little Blues or Fairy Penguins, which average around one kilo. With a combination of words and pictures, the author presents a journey into their highly sociable world. He tells of the dangers they face from their natural enemies and, indeed, from man, and explains how conservation groups are working to protect them.
