Far, far south, in the strange and beautiful land of Antarctica, it is dark both day and night all winter long. When at last spring comes, the penguins and seals raise their young. But, one year, loud, unfamiliar sounds announce the arrival of a new presence--one the animals hope can share this fragile world with them in peace.  This book was selected as a New York Times Book Review Notable Children's Book of the Year!
