The World Of Penguins
Evelyne Daigle

Tundra Books

Thanks to the 2006 movie “Happy Feet,” many children probably have penguins on the brain. With Evelyne Daigle’s The World of Penguins (Tundra Books), kids learn about the world’s 17 penguin species and how they live. Daigle, a biologist and wildlife educator, observed penguins in captivity for almost twelve years and then studied them in Antarctica. Wildlife illustrator Daniel Grenier’s detailed acrylic artwork and effective use of space and text boxes prevents the pages from becoming text heavy, and a bibliography of French and English print and web sources is included. This book was originally published as Les saisons des manchots.( mRb
