'early explorers killed penguins for food and oil, but now penguins are regarded with protective interest and affection. Penguin [is] a high-quality, fully illustrated paperback by Stephen Martin. He considers both the natural and the cultural history' - Church Times 'a welcome addition to the expanding catalog of penguin products ... Martin shows us just how old and enduring our fascination with the birds really is.' - The Quarterly Review of Biology 'Penguin is a book for all penguin people - it covers much ground and provides a background explanation of the anthropomorphic view of penguins held by most people - even by some who work with them' - Emu-Austral Ornithology
