Overview

On an island near Antarctica, a young king penguin lives in the middle of a busy colony. Even though he's as tall a kitchen table now, the fuzzy one-year-old is still fed every day by his parents, who have no trouble picking their own chick out of the crowd. But one day the parents stop fishing for their little one and disappear. Their youngster is on his own. The hungry penguin will have to grow up quickly now - the next meal is up to him.

Did you know... there are seventeen different kinds of penguins in the world. The largest is the emperor; the king penguin is the second largest.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-Readers follow a colony of king penguin chicks on the island of South Georgia from their dependence on their parents for food to their ability to fend for themselves at sea. Significant milestones in their growth and relationships with their parents and their colony are vibrantly detailed in both text and in the sharp, clear, full-color photos that bring readers into each scene. Though Gail Gibbons's Penguins! (1998) is appropriate for younger children and Dorothy Patent's Looking at Penguins (1993, both Holiday) is for older readers, they both describe a variety of penguins. Baby Penguin is uniquely useful and valuable because of its excellence and its focus on one species.-Nancy Call, Santa Cruz Public Libraries, Aptos, CA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
