My Season with Penguins: An Antarctic Journal

My Season with Penguins: An Antarctic Journal Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What is it like to live in a tiny Polar Haven for two months? To look into the odd, expressive eyes of an Adélie chick? To be flipper-slapped by a bird whose wings are powerful enough to propel it swiftly through frigid waters? Sophie Webb knows, and she gives readers a frank firsthand account of what it is like to spend a season in a land not yet affected by humans, yet populated for centuries by true dwellers of the Antarctic—the fearless, round-bellied, pink-footed, waddling, diving, utterly adept Adélie penguins.

About the Author

Since childhood, Sophie Webb has loved drawing birds and mammals. She has studied and painted flammulated owls in New Mexico, mockingbirds in the Galápagos, bowerbirds in Australia, and shorebirds in Alaska. Her ornithological illustrations appear in A Guide to the Birds of Mexico and Northern Central America. She has traveled to the Antarctic three times and lives in Bolinas, California. This is her first book with Houghton Mifflin.
