He talks through every aspect of a breeding emperor's life, explaining how they have become so resilient while also recalling the personal obstacles that, being over 15,000km away from the comforts of home, almost proved too much.

    The author follows the penguins as they march up to 100 miles over solid ice to reach their breeding grounds and reveals facts including how it's actually the males that incubate the eggs, fasting for over 100 days to ensure they introduce their chicks safely into their new frozen world.
