From the time the little penguin crawls out of his cracked egg, cradled on his father s feet, until the day when he goes off to live at sea alone, he is a majestic figure in an extraordinary setting the emperor of Antarctica. He faces natural predators and the struggles of survival in a challenging climate. Then one day, he cradles his own little penguin on his feet. Jonathan London s moving text is perfectly matched with Julie Olson s vibrant and adorable artwork in pencil, watercolor, and digital media.
