We are the oakum boys.
We do everything together.
Penguins don’t fly, they swim.
But we’re too young to swim.
So we walk.
One day we went
for a long walk.
We walked and walked.
Until we saw something new.
He’s got something
on his head!
So are you!
It’s not so bad!
It’s not so cold!
But who’s going to
teach us to swim?
In this book you’ll meet king penguins, chinstrap
penguins, and one lonely macaroni … as seen
through the eyes of the oakum boys, which are what
king penguin babies are before they grow up.
All of these penguin species (and a few more) are
found in Antarctica, the coldest, driest, windiest
place on earth. It takes some very special qualities to
survive in this harsh landscape. But if you are lucky
enough to visit here, you will find that no matter how
alike the penguins seem, each one is different – and
all of them are special.
We hope that by learning about these amazing
animals, future generations will want to protect
them as much as we do.
