Each winter, alone in the pitiless ice desert of Antarctica, deep in the most inhospitable terrain on Earth, a truly remarkable journey takes place as it has done for millennia. Emperor penguins by the thousands abandon the deep blue security of their ocean home and clamber onto the frozen ice to begin their long journey into a region so bleak, so extreme, it supports no other wildlife at this time of year. In single file, the penguins march blinded by blizzards, buffeted by gale force winds. Resolute, indomitable, driven by the overpowering urge to reproduce, they cross the frozen continent. And that is where the real story of love and dedication - between penguin mates and penguin parents and their chicks - begins. "March of the Penguins" tells this extraordinary story of love and survival through remarkable photographs taken during the production of the film. Illuminating text elaborates on the film, and a special appendix features behind-the-scenes photos and the story of the film itself, which required 13 arduous months in Antarctica.

This book is for adults, for youngsters, and for reading to little ones too.
The photos are beautiful and really added to my appreciation of these amazing birds. I think everyone will love this book and love the penguins and their great courage. It is a book to keep, love, and hand down to the next generation.
The cover demonstrates the love between a penguin and its chick. This picture alone told me that this book must be rate a strong "buy." But is just gets better and better inside. The stars of this book are the photos of the penguins and those without these birds that showcase the beautiful and harsh icescape in which they live. You'll finds lots of close ups and panoramic shots as well.
The text is sparse (the pictures tell most of the story) but it is extremely informative. After the introduction the book takes you through a year in the life of the emperor penguin. The chapters:
1) Legend Has It
2) The March - You'll see hundreds of penguins marching in single file.
3) The Gathering - The penguins mass together against the cold for the winter.
4) The Courtship - Penguins use sound to find their mate. Lots of photos of cute couples.
5) The Egg - The penguins must endure much hardship in protecting this treasure.
6) The Birth - The best chapter of all. Cut little chicks and their parents.
7) The First Steps - The baby penguins strive for independence.
8) The Spring - Relief from the hard winter and dangerous crossings.
9) The Plunge - Penguins at play, jumping into the ocean and swimming.
10) Making the film. Awesome chapter. It shows the penguins and camera crew together. They come right up to the crew members!
At the beginning the author states that, "Anyone who really wants to understand this most human of birds must first love them." I already did, but all the more so after reading the text and gaping at the beautiful photos.
Two words of advice: you might need two copies. One to preserve as is, and another so you can cut out and mount your favorite photos. And see the movie (I can hardly wait.) Enjoy!
