About the Author
Gianna Marino has written and illustrated many highly acclaimed picture books, including Don't Let Them Disappear by Chelsea Clinton. Gianna was born in San Francisco and spent her early years galloping horses through Golden Gate Park. She's made a living as an apprentice to a muralist, a jewelry designer, a product designer, and a horse-carriage driver. Addicted to foreign adventure, Gianna has traveled worldwide, including Europe, Asia, Australia, and Central and South America. Between explorations, she lives and works in Northern California and still gallops on horses. For more about Gianna and her books, visit giannamarino.com.
Reviews
★ "Marino's gorgeous artwork is on full display in this sweet book narrated by a baby emperor penguin . . . perfect for repeated readings, one-on-one and during story time." --School Library Journal, starred review

"An emperor penguin chick narrates this educational polar tale, which showcases the heroic efforts undertaken by penguin parents--especially the intrepid females--to support their young. Anthropomorphic narration lends a tenderhearted feel to the scientific information communicated about penguin family dynamics." --Publishers Weekly
