Shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal and winner of the Children's Book Award, this stunning picture book tells the gripping and poignant story of a young penguin's survival in the Antarctic

Solo the penguin chick is left cold and alone on the hazardous wastes of the Antarctic, when her mother leaves on a final desperate search for food. With savage skua birds on the wing and leopard seals lurking in the icy waters, Solo's chances of survival are cruelly slim—will she make it alive? Information about wildlife combines with icy, gorgeous art to tell Solo's compelling tale.
