Can you imagine spending the winter outdoors in Antarctica without anything to eat? Thats just what the male Emperor penguin does. While his mate is off swimming and catching loads of fish, he stands around in the freezing cold with an egg on his feet for two whole months, keeping it warm and waiting for it to hatch. Welcome to the story of the worlds most devoted dad!

Jane Chapman says she has wanted to paint pictures of penguins ever since her honeymoon when she visited a Scottish zoo and saw penguins waddling along on parade.

Among the most charming books of 1999 is an usually playful book on biology that you can read with a 2-year-old or use for your second-grader's science report.... quite a perfect children's book, not to mention the fact that it's hard to find good books that celebrate fathers.

Budding ornithologists will enjoy this lively and informative book.
