Product description


"Stunningly vivid and gorgeous pictures . . . The briskly minimal text is clear, informative, and astute." --Entertainment Weekly

"A spectacular book." --The Horn Book

"Visually dazzling." --The New York Times Book Review

"Dramatic illustrations deftly blend light and shadow as they depict the rigorous--and threatened--existence of emperor penguins, Weddell seals, and Adélie penguins on the frozen continent." --Publishers Weekly

"[A] handsome, eloquent defense of a threatened environment. In simple text and elegantly designed double-spread paintings . . . Cowcher describes the behavior of three species that share a common habitat; then shows how . . . the presence of man can disrupt the nesting of thousands." --Kirkus Reviews

About the Author
