Written by Sophie Webb. Published by Houghton Mifflin Company.
Winner Blurb: 

Webb deftly uses illustrated journal entries to document her participation in a two-month expedition to Antarctica to study Adelie penguins in 1996.  She includes absorbing details of daily life for a scientist in the field, as well as the life and behavior of penguins.  Clear prose and engaging illustrations done in watercolor, gouache and graphite convey how an ornithologist works and lives in the field.
