Description

Owen Davey's popular non-fiction series continues with a lushly illustrated guide to penguins from the Antarctic to tropical climates like beaches, and coastal forests.

"Stunning illustrations and clear readable text combine to make this large format book about all types of penguins a sure hit with animal-loving patrons."
--STARRED REVIEW School Library Journal

"Enough penguin facts to keep even David Attenborough busy." 
--The Tiny Activist


Did you know that penguins can hold their breath for over half an hour? Or that they can swim four times faster than an Olympic swimmer? And they don't just live in icy Antarctica! You can find them on sandy beaches in South Africa and other more tropical locations too.

Dive into this fascinating illustrated guide to our feathered friends, the penguins. From the tiny fairy penguin that is no bigger than a ruler, to the emperor penguin that is over a meter tall, find out where they live, what they eat and how we can protect them.
