Part of Fitzhenry & Whiteside's Nature Babies series, this book tells the story of a young King penguin chick who lives in Antarctica. It explains how the fuzzy chick spends its days until it is ready to live in the sea.
Clear, simple text, lots of cute photos, and the book's small size make it very attractive to young readers.

Did you know that there are 17 different kinds of penguins in the world? And that many of them live in warm climates? The fascinating variety of penguins and their often hilarious behaviours are documented in Lynch's photo-filled book. Through entertaining anecdotes and informative text, readers will learn everything they need to know about how penguins swim, what they eat, and how they evade their predators.
A fun book for children ages seven and up.
