Shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal and winner of the Children's Book Award, this stunning picture book tells the gripping and poignant story of a young penguin's survival in the Antarctic

Solo the penguin chick is left cold and alone on the hazardous wastes of the Antarctic, when her mother leaves on a final desperate search for food. With savage skua birds on the wing and leopard seals lurking in the icy waters, Solo's chances of survival are cruelly slim—will she make it alive? Information about wildlife combines with icy, gorgeous art to tell Solo's compelling tale.

From the Inside Flap:

in full color. "Geraghty's polished, striking art is the mainstay of this volume. The story, about the newborn penguin Solo and her parents, moves from one perilous scenario to the next as Solo's parents take turns visiting the danger-filled sea in order to get food. Geraghty's illustrations bring the Antarctic winter so close that one can't help but shiver."--Publishers Weekly.
