An award-winning picture book about the Emperor penguin's parenting. The Emperor penguin is the only large animal to remain on the Antarctic mainland throughout its bitterly inhospitable winter.

Once the female has laid her egg, she heads back to the sea, leaving the male to incubate it.

He then spends two months standing on the freezing cold ice with the egg on his feet!

This is his story.
