Synopsis

Penguin's Way by Johanna Johnston

'All over the snow plain the penguins begin to sing. The eggs are beginning to arrive.' This is the story of the emperor penguins that live far away on the edge of a secret sea. During summer they are content with fishing, swimming and playing in the icy waters. But when the season changes, they must travel to the snowy lands around the South Pole. How will they and the newly hatched penguin chicks survive the icy winter? This is a delightful introduction to the natural world of the penguin, told in narrative form with beautiful, timeless illustrations.
