As I am fairly obsessed with penguins, I found this book beautiful.
The photos are fantastic & with the narrative to go with them, it is a wonderful book.
There are details in the beginning, showing where particular penguins live & all of their details, followed by many wonderful photos.
I regularly look at the book - it's not one to go on the shelf never to be seen again!
I would recommend anyone with the slightest interest in penguins to buy this book - definately a bargain!

The book is called "Penguins" and guess what? It is about Penguins. There are extensive, excellent photographs printed on good quality paper and the book is certainly essential reading for anyone who has an interest in this iconic bird. Care is needed when handling several of the pages; there is a pull-out section which provides a panoramic view of a very large gathering of Penguins. At first glance, the folded pages of this section could be mistaken for several pages not correctly cut and the unwary could mistakenly attempt to cut the edges of the two folded sections. Overall, an excellent book, well-worth purchasing, either as a gift, or to add to an existing private library.

I love this book, I love penguins so I had to buy it. The book has 100% colour pictures in a uncluttered format. There is no heavy literature with this book. You just look at each page in your own time. If I had any disappointing points to make - i just wish that this book had more pages in it!!
