Synopsis

Exploring Nature Fantastic Penguins: An Exciting, Fact-filled Journey Through the Frozen World of These Flightless Birds, with More Than 200 Pictures by Barbara Taylor

This is an exciting, fact-filled journey through the frozen world of these flightless birds, with more than 200 pictures. You can find out all about these intriguing creatures and their stunning habitat. You can discover the many different penguin varieties, from Adelie and Gentoo to Chinstrap and Macaroni. It offers an accessible information on how penguins survive and behave, such as hunting for food and raising young. It includes amazing-but-true facts and feature boxes. With over 200 images by top wildlife photographers, as well as specially commissioned illustrations, including inside-view anatomical artworks. It is an ideal reference guide for use at home or school for 8- to 12-year-olds. These delightful birds are unlike any other. They cannot fly, and on land they waddle around like clumsy little people - but in the sea they are swift and graceful swimmers. They can also leap high out of the water and some can even jump over rocks. On snow they can slide along on their fronts like toboggans. This lively guide offers a unique insight into the lives of penguins. You can learn about their amazing courtship displays and find out how they survive in freezing temperatures. This volume is a valuable resource for young natural history enthusiasts.
