If you like penguins as much as I do, you know how hard it often is to find the best books about them. There are a lot -- a search on "penguins" at yields about 213 thousand titles. (Granted, many of these are out of print, and some are children's books, but you get the idea.)

To save penguin lovers the trouble, I've created, where I list my favorite books about our flippered-but-flightless friends. I've included links to the books at Amazon as well, so you can buy them immediately.

"I love penguins and my favourite penguin book from my childhood was Mr. Popper's Penguins. I realize that today its contents may be frowned upon, since Mr. Popper kept his penguins in a refrigerator in his basement and he painted their feathers so that he could tell them apart. However, I still think that it is a delightful penguin fiction to go along with all the factual books on your site."
Mr. Popper's Penguins: $6.99 at Amazon.
