You’re on the South Georgia Islands, a remote, icy place, with nobody around for miles and milesexcept several thousand penguin friends, that is. Stunning photographs by Yva Momatiuk and John Eastcott lead you into a mass of birds as they waddle across rock and sand, so clumsy on land, so graceful in the sea. Learn of the nesting habits, diet, family and social lives of these birds that always look dressed to impress. This fun book will also inspire readers to care about penguins’ threatened habitats.
