• Antarctica 1990

    Far, far south in the strange and beautiful land of Antarctica. It is dark both day and night. When at last spring comes, the penguins and seals raise their young. But one year, unfamiliar sounds announce the arrival of a new presence – one the creatures hope can share this fragile world with them in peace.

    The Horn Book

    Visually dazzling

    New York Times

    “A handsome, eloquent defense of a threatened environment. In simple text and elegantly designed double-spread paintings....Cowcher describes the behavior of three species that share a common habitat; then shows how...the presence of man can disrupt the nesting of thousands.”

    Kirkus Reviews

    “A book whose pictures stay in the mind, for they miraculously transport the reader to a place few will have the chance to experience first hand”.
