From the time the little penguin crawls out of his cracked egg, cradled

on his father's feet, until the day when he goes off to live at sea

alone, he is a majestic figure in an extraordinary setting the emperor

of Antarctica. He faces natural predators and the struggles of survival

in a challenging climate. Then one day, he cradles his own little penguin

on his feet. Jonathan London's moving text is perfectly matched with

Julie Olson's vibrant and adorable artwork in pencil, watercolor, and

digital media.
