What is it like to live in a tiny polar haven for two months? To paint penguins outdoors in freezing weather? To be flipper-slapped by a bird whose wings are powerful enough to propel it swiftly through frigid waters? To look into the oddly expressive eyes of a penguin chick?
With charming watercolors and intriguing journal entries, this book inspires our curiosity. Sophie Webb gives readers a vivid, frank, firsthand account of what it is like to spend a season in a land not yet affected by people, yet populated for centuries by true dwellers of the Antarctic -- the fearless, round-bellied, pink-footed, gliding, diving, utterly adept Adélie penguins.

Sophie Webb shares the journal that she kept during her two months in Antarctica observing penguins, with both joys and sorrows (the death of penguin chicks, using an outhouse in freezing cold), which she illustrates with watercolor sketches.
