Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Gr. 3-5. Billed as "the official children's companion to the major motion picture," this in no way replicates the power of the film, but it will make a pleasant read for those who enjoyed the movie and will inform those who haven't seen it. Beginning, "This is Antarctica, the harshest place in the world to live," the text goes on to explain in simple terms what was narrated so effectively by Morgan Freeman in the movie: the life cycle of the emperor penguin. An early, effective spread shows an impossibly long line of penguins marching from the sea to their inland home, where they will mate. Most of the book focuses on the egg the mother hatches and then must leave with the father as she makes her way back to the water for sustenance. The father's care, including keeping a meal for the babies in his throat (even though he hasn't eaten for 100 days), will strike readers as remarkable. The photos, which appear to be stills from the movie, are more interesting than stunning, but with the easy-to-read text, this should find a welcoming audience. Ilene Cooper

Your really get pulled into the world of the Penguins. I cheered, bit my nails with worry and even shed a tear. After watching the movie, we wanted to know more about the penguins. Luckily, the extras were just as good as the movie itself.

Easy read. Even though it's named like the movie you do not need to see the movie to follow the book. My daughter loves it.
