Description

On an island near Antarctica, a young king penguin lives in the middle of a busy colony. Even though he's as tall a kitchen table now, the fuzzy one-year-old is still fed every day by his parents, who have no trouble picking their own chick out of the crowd. But one day the parents stop fishing for their little one and disappear. Their youngster is on his own. The hungry penguin will have to grow up quickly now - the next meal is up to him.

Did you know... there are seventeen different kinds of penguins in the world. The largest is the emperor; the king penguin is the second largest.
