Every Penguin in the World: A Quest To See Them All

Sasquatch. Apr. 2020. 193p. photos by the author. ISBN 9781632172662. $22.95. REF
Author and photographer Bergman (A Penguin Told Me a Secret) and his wife, Susan, found their interest in penguins slowly turning to passion and obsession, culminating in a goal to see each of the 18 penguin species in the wild. Part travelog, part conservation, part philosophical musing, the book supplies ample, frequently adorable photos of every species, along with tales of wet, often cold, and occasionally uncomfortable adventures.
VERDICT The quasihuman charm of penguins is hard to resist, and this title is sure to find its audience.
