Summary
In this touching and informative book, author Martin Jenkins describes and illustrates how the male Emperor penguin cares for a newly laid egg, withstanding the brutal Antarctic winter with no food -- or breaks -- while his mate hunts for fish. Loaded with both charm and penguin facts and illustrated with gorgeous, realistic paintings, The Emperor's Egg will thrill kids who love learning about these birds. -- Description by Ellen Foreman
