‘In the dark of winter, Floe leapt out of the sea.
‘For days she hiked across the ice. It blew and it snowed. She slid and she stumbled, but she never once stopped to rest...’

Solo the penguin chick is left cold and alone on the hazardous wastes of the Antarctic, when her mother leaves on a final desperate search for food. With savage skua birds on the wing and leopard seals lurking in the icy waters, Solo's chances of survival are cruelly slim; will she make it alive?

An accurate and suspense-fulled tale of the tribulations and ordeals of an emperor penguin family in Antarctica. Also touching on environmental and conservation issues, young readers will associate with Solo, the baby penguin, at times alone in a harsh and dangerous world.
