Reviews from all over the world
""Part of a stylish new illustrated series devoted to the daily lives of young animals […] Bailey covers the basics in a tone that’s informative but delighted by the improbabilities of penguins. Her friendly, big-eyed creatures look as if they’re having a blast." —The New York Times
"Illustrator Ella Bailey’s sweet and lively introduction to the creatures that inhabit the wild and remote Antarctic is filled with a surprising variety of species. […] Kids will have fun following the Adélie penguin chick’s adventures in the Antarctic Ocean." —American Scientist, STEM Books for Young Children
"This lovely follow-up to In the Savannah (2015) continues a promising series introducing ecosystems to very young readers and listeners. […] An appealing introduction to Antarctica that appropriately fosters a child's sense of wonder without adding a layer of worry about its future." —Kirkus Reviews
"Every glorious double-page spread is in full color, showing animals hunting for food and exploring their surroundings. Vibrant drawings on the endpapers identify 19 birds above the Antarctic ice and 17 mammals and fish below. Children will have fun finding these species as the chick encounters them in this excellent introduction to this polar region." —Booklist
