About the Author:

Sandra Markle has written over seventy nonfiction books for young readers, including her Growing Up Wild and Outside and Inside series. Her books have won awards from the Boston Globe/Horn Book, NSTA/CBC, ABA, and ALA. She lives in Florida.

From Booklist:

K-Gr. 3. With evocative watercolor-and-ink images, this beautiful picture-book tribute to female emperor penguins plunges children into the harsh icy landscape and frigid waters of Antarctica, home to the penguins. The understated, lyrical text follows a young mother penguin as she lays her first egg and then, leaving her mate to tend it, joins the other females as they travel for five days to reach the pack ice and food. Once there, she swims day after day, swallowing her fill of fish and watching for dangerous seals and hunters. In all, she travels 930 miles on a zigzag course until the beginning of August, when instinct tells her it's time to return to her mate and the egg's hatching. A familiar author of nonfiction science series books presents facts in a different way in this excellent nature narrative, which is respectful, unsentimental, and rich in detail. Marks' softly colored art is a perfect compliment. A page of back matter provides additional information, including a bibliography, a list of Web sites, and an author's note about her Antarctic explorations. Julie Cummins
