display_description A mother emperor penguin is charged with a special duty: to bring food to her newborn chick. But the closest food is in the open sea, miles from the penguin breeding ground. While the father penguin incubates the egg as it develops into a chick, the mother must trek far across the pack ice, dodging predators and battling bitter cold to bring back the food her baby desperately needs.
