The comical and colorful faces of puffins have earned them the popular name 'clowns of the sea'. On land they waddle and hop amongst rocks to and from their burrows, but once in the air, they wheel and turn with great agility and grace. The author portrays the multifarious activities of these lovable seabirds during their breeding season and reveals how they live and survive at high altitudes.

Masterly collection of photographs with intelligent commentary on the biology of puffins and their habitats. My pleasure in the book would be much enhanced by a hardcover; I particularly object to double page spreads across 'perfect' binding.
