Publishers Weekly, 2006-01-09 Those who loved the movie will clamor for March of the Penguins based on the film by Luc Jacquet, text by Jordan Roberts, photos by Jerome Maison. Inset photos chronicle penguins, sliding on their bellies or diving from ocean to land, while a full-spread image shows the dramatic parade of penguins at the film's core. The passing of the egg from one parent to the other is here, the predators are absent; this will likely send families right back to the newly released DVD. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Publishers Weekly, 2005-10-24 Moviegoers can relive the excitement of watching the emperor penguins' life cycle with this companion book to the second most popular documentary in American film history and the highest-grossing natural history film of all time. Actually, this fine book works as a stand-alone volume, thanks to its charming photographs and revealing text. As fans of the movie know, the emperor penguins have been trekking hundreds of miles from the sea to their breeding grounds in Antarctica every year for millennia. They do this against 150-mile-an-hour winds and in minus 70 degree temperatures, dodging predatory birds and other dangers, in an attempt to create a safe environment for their babies. Filmmaker Jacquet capably relays the wonder of this natural ritual, revealing, for instance, that each penguin has a distinct vocal pattern, and when one sings, nearby penguins remain quiet so that each penguin can be heard. A chapter on the making of the film, though too short, nicely illustrates the challenges of following 7,000 penguins across the frozen expanse of Antarctica. Jacquet admits that in such temperatures, "each gesture costs us, and we can appreciate how much the penguins have to endure." 150 photos. (Nov.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
