Penguins : the ultimate guide

Author: Tui De Roy; Mark Jones; Julie Cornthwaite
Publisher: Princeton : Princeton University Press, 2014. ©2013
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Penguins are, perhaps, the most loved of birds. We've been fascinated by them for just about as long as we've known they existed. When penguins are on land, their actions appear to us so humorous and expressive that we can be excused for thinking we understand them perfectly, identifying with what looks like moods and foibles similar to our own.

Abstract:

Penguins are, perhaps, the most loved of birds. We've been fascinated by them for just about as long as we've known they existed. When penguins are on land, their actions appear to us so humorous and expressive that we can be excused for thinking we understand them perfectly, identifying with what looks like moods and foibles similar to our own.
