Description

The penguin has adapted to more habitats and climates than any other animal in the world. They live on sandy African beaches, windswept hills in South America and New Zealand, and icebergs in Antarctica. None of the 17 species of penguins can fly, but some penguins can swim long distances and dive to great depths for food. Children will find out all about penguins in this book.

Includes a table of contents, index, sidebars, and full of extraordinary photography throughout.
