3 years ago, The Penguin King left home. Now he is returning to the place where he was born and raised: Penguin City. Somehow he must establish his own place in it. He must find a mate and together they must set out to raise a family. What follows is a journey through the most challenging time of our young penguin's life. He must do everything he can to get his chick through its first perilous year. He must teach it, and protect it from the harsh weather and bloodthirsty predators. His story is often comic, sometimes tragic and ultimately triumphant: a rite of passage set on one of the Earths last great wildernesses.
