Overview / 简介:
Renowned science writer Wayne Lynch has a passion and fascination for the members of the penguin family. A self-described "penguin addict," he has logged more than 130,000 miles to sit among hundreds, sometimes even thousands of penguins on the far-flung beaches of the Galápagos Islands, Chile, Antarctica and New Zealand. This stocky little bird survives a rocky adolescence and adulthood, to experience territorial squabbles, "marriages," attacks by sea mammals and sometimes months without food as it incubates its eggs through the unrelenting winter. With lively, humorous writing and unforgettable photographs, Penguins! explores the daily lives of this feisty seabird survivor.
From Organization / 国外机构评价:
When field biologist Lynch went to visit the Arctic, he unexpectedly fell in love with the penguins that inhabit the continent. His affection for his subject shines through in this appealing book, which covers the various species. Illustrated with well-captioned, excellent color photographs, the text introduces penguins in all stages of life and discusses how they evolved to be flightless, how they get around, where they live, what they eat, mating habits, and how young penguins gain independence. A map of the Southern Hemisphere pinpoints where the various species live. Filled with general information, the book will attract report writers, but it will also intrigue other children, who may find themselves completely enamored by these unusual birds.|
