Synopsis: Penguins are, perhaps, the most loved of all birds, often being portrayed as caricatures of ourselves. Yet despite their popularity the many extraordinary facets of penguin life are only just being revealed. Modelled on the authors' much-praised Albatross: Their world, their ways (2008), this book is the first to comprehensively cover all of the 18 penguin species alongside the latest research into many of their more unusual adaptations, such as their deep-diving abilities. Penguins are the 'canaries in the coalmine' of the oceans, and their presence is indicatiive of a healthy marine environment. Although they are an icon of the southern hemisphere, what penguins can teach us about our changing seas is of truly global significance.

About the Author: Tui De Roy is a highly acclaimed writer and photographer whose previous books include the groundbreaking Albatross (2008) and Galapagos: Preserving Darwin's Legacy (2009). Writer and photographer Mark Jones has collaborated with Tui on many projects, including co-authoring Albatross. Tui and Mark, along with Julie Cornthwaite, are based in New Zealand but their travels have spanned virtually everywhere that penguins are found, from the sun-baked lava shores of the Galapagos Islands to the deep-frozen Antarctic where Emperor Penguins nest.
