Sintesi dell'editore

African penguins waddle around nesting colonies in lower numbers than ever before. Despite South African government efforts to protect the penguin colonies and their ocean fish supply, young penguins still struggle to survive. Fuzzy chicks waiting for food in open nests may overheat in the sun or become prey. Others simply may not get enough food to survive on their own once their parents leave. But new conservation methods, including rescuing and hand-feeding vulnerable chicks, are giving experts hope. Can volunteers and scientists help save Africa's only penguins before it's too late?

"Drawn from many sources, well-chosen photos appear on every page of the book and illustrate the text very effectively. As few creatures are as photogenic as penguins or adorable as their chicks, the illustrations also heighten interest the birds' plight. A vivid introduction to African penguins, their remarkable rescue, and their still precarious existence." (Booklist, starred)

"Smoothly written and beautifully presented, another stellar animal conservation tale." (Kirkus Reviews)

"Markle's unanthropomorphized opening scene is a powerful entree into the plight of African penguins, once numbering in the millions and now reduced to thousands, that colonize Africa's southernmost coast. Exceptionally well-organized text leads readers through the reasons for endangerment, such as guano and egg harvesting, commercial fishing practices, and a massive fuel spill in 2000 from a passing cargo ship. (The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books)
