Above all, penguins dominate this story, especially the account of how Hill purchased Grand and Steeple Jason Islands in the Falklands, islands literally teeming with millions of birds. Illustrated throughout in color and black and white, with line drawngs by one of Len Hill's friends, Paul Nicolas, this warm and joyful book will delight readers everywhere.
